Juvenile dull olive above, pale below, with paler bill than most other small finch-like birds. Feeds on the ground; when disturbed, flushes into trees, showing a flash of bright green backs. Inhabits grassy open woodlands across northeastern Western Australia, the Top End of Northern Territory, and parts of northern Queensland.
