The head, neck and the underparts are white, while the eyeline is broad black. The nape and upperparts are blackish-brown accompanied with blackish brown streaked breast band. Alternate blackish brown and paler greyish-brown bands occur on the uppertail and there is a broad blackish brown terminal band. Furthermore, the iris is yellow and the legs are greyish. The juvenile upperparts are paler brown with white fringes and lack broad blackish terminal band of uppertail.
