Sexes are similar, but male is slightly larger with a longer tail.
The head, neck and underparts are dark and the wings and tail are chestnut. The eye-ring and beak are distinctly bluish. There is a prominent white wingbar. The female has a browner tint to the underparts and lacks the tail streamers. Young birds are similar to the female but duller.
