Small, fairly colorful bird with a typical warbler shape. The head is mostly gray, the upperparts olive-green, the upper breast whitish, and the belly and lower breast rich yellow. Found in lush woodland and savanna. An active, restless bird that is usually in small groups. Similar to Yellow-bellied Eremomela, but longer-tailed and brighter overall, with a greener back and yellow extending up onto the lower breast. The apalis-like song is a long series of low-pitched “whichew” notes, usually given at dawn. The calls include a short trill and low scratchy notes. These calls are often given in chorus by a whole group.
