This small passerinebird is a species found in reed beds, usually with some bushes. 3-5 eggs are laid in a basket nest in reeds.
This is a medium-sized warbler, 12.5-14cm in length. The adult has a unstreaked brown back and buff underparts. The forehead is flattened, and the bill is strong and pointed. The sexes are identical, as with most warblers, but young birds are richer buff below. Like most warblers, it is insectivorous, but will take other small food items including berries.
The song is a slow, chattering jit-jit-jit with typically acrocephaline whistles and mimicry added.
