The female can be distinguished from the male by her brown plumage and lightly mottled breast.

The nest, which is an untidy cup is built by the female from vegetation, such as grass and twigs, and bound together with mud and finer grasses. It is usually in a hedge or bush, though they will use shelves in huts and other outbuildings.The female incubates the eggs by herself. After the young hatch, they are fed by both parents. Breeding starts in march and it is usual for 2-3 clutches to be produced.
