Their unique appearance makes them easily recognizable in nature. Just look for a tiny, egg-shaped, fluffy bird, that enjoys resting by doing a split on three branches.

Males can be easily spotted for their gingerish-brown overall with bluish-grey heads.

They also feature black mustache-like markings that go from under their eyes down to their throats with similar black streaks beneath their tails.
