It has a black band running over and back from the eyes, a white band above the eye, a black band of top of head; bluish gray back, pinkish brown under side; slender bill. Another bird has yellowish sides to body. A whitish-toned band below eyes. He feeds on insects under the dead bark and runs up and down vertical trunk with utmost ease. These birds are quite tame.
