Long-tailed brownish warbler. White below with clean dark barring. Found in broadleaf woodland: miombo, mopane, and Zambezi teak. Usually found in pairs or small groups. Often raises its tail in wren-like fashion. The song consists of three metallic notes, often repeated, reminiscent of a telephone ringtone. Similar to Barred Wren-Warbler, but found in different habitat, and the dark barring on the underparts contrasts more strongly with the white base color.
