Male has black throat and white neck patch bordered in bllack, female a pale buff-colored throat. Wanders around on rocky hillsides and ridges with open forest and plenty of leaf litter and rocks. Fairly unobtrusive, but sometimes sings from a low perch. Calls include a long, very high-pitched "seeeeeep” and a long sequence of doubled whistles.
