A plain, somber waxbill with a pale grayish head, olive upperparts, buffy underparts, a distinctive orange-red bill and rump, and pale eyes. Found in pairs and small and large groups; uncommon and localized in rank grass (especially elephant grass), reeds, and sedges on the edges of rivers, swamps, and forest, and also sometimes in agricultural plantations, particularly manioc. Gives a nasal “nyert,” often in concert with others. The similar-looking Orange-cheeked Waxbill associates with Anambra, but always has an orange face patch (duller in juveniles) and a black bill.
