A drab, long-tailed brownish bird related to greenbuls. The tail is rufous and the throat paler buff. Found in scrub, thickets, and areas of dense woodland, almost always in small and vocal groups. The loud calls are rollicking series of babbling calls, somewhat similar to both woodhoopoe and babbler vocalizations. Very similar to Terrestrial Brownbul, but throat patch is much duller instead of bright white, and tail is more rufous. Also similar to Fischer’s Greenbul, but has dark rather than pale eyes. Separated from other greenbuls by the lack of olive-green in the plumage.
