The upper parts are lighter and more clean-grey, with less dispersed buffy-olive tinge than on rubecula. On the upper tail coverts and on the borders of outer webs of tail feathers the buffy-olive shade is less dispersed than on rubecula. The rusty colour on the forehead, lore, throat and breast is lighter than rubecula.


The indication about the nesting in Dzhungarskiy Alatau is not proved. On migration occurs in the eastern part of Kazakhstan, in the west up to Naurzum Reserve (5 November 1971), the lower Turgay river and Syrdarya valley. Recorded in highlands of Zailiyskiy Alatau (Bolshoye Almatinskoye lake on 25 October 1975 and some lower on 28 November 1977). Sometimes winters in south-eastern Kazakhstan, from Ile valley up to foothills of Western Tien Shan. Near Chilik three birds recorded 15 January 2000.
