Small pinkish waxbill with a blue-gray bill and black under the tail. Found along forest edge, and in cultivation, thick woodland, and scrub. Usually in pairs or small groups. Most common vocalization is a short trill. Similar to Red-billed and Bar-breasted firefinches but shows black under the tail. Can be extremely similar to African Firefinch subspecies without gray on the head, but Jameson’s is paler and more pinkish overall.
