Sexes are similar with a white head with a broad black or dark brown eye stripe curving down the neck. The throat, chest and underparts are white. The back and wings are dark brown. The long brown tail has narrow black bars visible in flight. The underside of the wings are mottled white and brown and show a rectangular brown patch at the wrist. A "necklace" of dark streaks may be visible, usually on females. The legs and feet are whitish with black claws. The eyes are bright yellow.
