Notice the diagnostic broad streaks on yellowish throat and chest.
A resonant, monotonous chuck chuck repeated incessantly; also a harsh churring rattle while feeding.

Flies only briefly, low across the ground, to reach the next bush quickly. It picks invertebrate prey from the leaves and stems. The nest is a like domed ball vegetation with a side entrance, built in a dense bushes near the ground.
