This bird eats insects. It is about 13 centimetres (5.1 inches) long. The male has a grey-brown back with an orange-red throat, breast, and sides. It is bordered with black on the throat and breast. Females and first-winter birds have slightly browner upper parts. The red of the underparts maybe just light pink.
