Long-tailed warbler with pale underparts and a rufous wing. The color of the head and back is grayish in breeding plumage and brown in non-breeding plumage. Found in areas of lush woodland with tall grass. Usually in the undergrowth, but will perch up sometimes, as when singing. The song is a fast series of whistled calls by one bird, often accompanied by “tik” notes from another. Similar to Tawny-flanked Prinia, but separated by the rufous wing and lack of a pale eyebrow.
