The male has black underparts and wings, chestnut upperparts, white eyebrows, and buffy wingbars. The female has chestnut underparts and a white throat, giving her a masked appearance. Inhabits cloud forest understory, where it is usually seen walking slowly on the ground. Song is a piping “see you see me.”
