Adults are 12.5–14.5 cm long with a weight of 7–12.4 g. They have grey-brown upperparts with a brown cap and greyish wings and tail; their face is mainly grey with white on the sides. Their underparts are white with brown on the flanks and a black throat. They have a short dark bill, short wings and a long notched tail. These birds forage on conifer branches or probe into the bark, eating mainly eat insects and seeds, which may be stored for later use.
