Nondescript, long-tailed, long-billed wetland warbler. There is a white eyebrow and dark spotting on the throat and breast. Found very locally in high-elevation marshes of the Albertine Rift. Fairly secretive, but will perch up to sing. The song is a dry trill preceded by a couple of “chyet” notes. Very similar to Little Rush-Warbler, but has a bolder white eyebrow, dark chest spotting, and a very different song. The variably streaked breast separates it from reed warblers.
