These birds hide in bushes and can mostly be found in the bushes and trees of damp grasslands. Not found in reed beds or wetlands. Rather bland in colour. Greyish-brown on top, olive grey on the sides. Long beak, the upper edge and tip of which are brighter than the rest of the beak. A dark eye stripe and a light supercilium reminiscent of a drop between the eyes and the beak. Short wing tips, dark legs.
