These medium-brown birds with pale underparts have spotted chests and large buffy eyerings that extend in front of the eye, creating “spectacles.” The whitish throat is bordered on each side with a dark brown stripe.
This is a forest bird, rarely found far from closed-canopy forest. Breeding habitat is a mix of deciduous and coniferous forest (though sometimes includes pure deciduous forest).
