Small, may recall a beige Chiffchaff or other Phylloscopus warbler. Rather nondescript: gray brown above, paler below with a short, dark-tipped bill and conspicuous pale eyebrow. Pot-bellied with quite short wings and a square-ended tail. Found in low bushes in steppes and meadows; also bushy areas on migration and in winter. Usually forages low down, and occasionally on the ground.
