This bird is always in the company of cows thus the name endiisa which translates to herding. It mainly feeds on insects which fly about as cows graze in the fields and not the ticks that are on the animals. 
It is yellow in colour with a yellow throat rimmed with a black stripe that comes from the beak downwards to the breast. Its wingbar and back are brown accentuated with black median and greater covert feathers.
