Comparing with gorgeous male birds, the female Sultan tit is a bit duller. Her upper plumage and sides are dark green-brown. She also has a glossy dark olive-green chin and throat and a dull black tail.

Young birds look quite similar to female birds.

Their breeding season begins from April to July. Female Sultan tit builds her nest in the cavity of a tree. She then lays 5-7 eggs in the nest, incubates them, and feeds the chicks until fully fledged.
