Length: 5 in. (13 cm )
This skulking warbler is restricted to dense vegetation along water courses, and its song and calls are the easiest way to detect its presence. It feeds mainly on insects and spiders caught on vegetation near the ground. Its cup-shaped nest is placed low in a bush and is large and loosely constructed of stems and grass.

The four-digit banding code is COYE.
