A small bird with a short tail. Males and females are similar in color, as well as juveniles after fledging; they are brown all over with a paler underpart and a darker brown crest and eyeline.
Breeding Asian stubtails reside in portions of northeast Asia; non-breeding in parts of southeast Asia including Taiwan and SE China, preferring a habitat of undergrowth in evergreen broadleaf or lowland coniferous forest.
Breeding males produce a high-pitched "shee-shee-shee-shee" or "cee-cee-cee", while both males and females make a call similar to "chott-chott-chott".
