Females are duller, with a less contrasted head and yellow-tinged under-parts.
Breeding habitat is coniferous or mixed woodlands, bogs and swamps, especially spruce forest edges. In migration can be found in almost any woodlands, orchards, and town parks.
Their main summer diet consists of insects, though in the winter they take berries, fruit and nectar in addition to any insects that can be found.
They nest on the ground. The clutch consists of 4-7 eggs which are laid in a cup nest. They rarely have a second brood, though may lay a replacement clutch up until August.
