A relatively thick-bodied, long-tailed warbler, prone to creeping like a mouse low in vegetation. Dark rusty brown above with paler rusty wings. Paler rufous below. Face mostly rufous with thin dark eye-stripe. Crown dark. Legs pale. Inhabits undergrowth of dense primary and secondary forest up to 1400 meters of elevation. Very similar to Bismarck Thicketbird, but paler overall, with a smaller dark face patch and pale legs. Song apparently a church-bell-like chiming, and call a harsh “churr” or “tchak.”
