Plain, warbler-like tetraka with a bold white eye-stripe. Madagascar endemic that is found in low and middle-elevation rainforest. Feeds in the mid-story and canopy, and sings from an exposed perch, often alongside a Stripe-throated Jery. Song is a loose, decelerating trill. Similar to Cryptic Warbler, but eye-stripe is bolder, and color of the upperparts is gray. Larger than jeries, with gray upperparts, and no streaks on the throat. Much paler than Wedge-tailed Tetraka, with a white eye-stripe rather than a gray ear patch.
