A large Warbler with yellowish face and pale eye arcs, pale yellow breast with blurry streaks, fading to a white vent and undertail, dark wings with two white wing-bars, yellowish edging on primaries and bold white tertial edges. Back dull yellow-green with faint dark streaks, spread tail mostly black with white spots on inner webs of r6/r5. Flew in giving buzzy flight calls, landed in a saltbush then attempted to get to edge of water, presumably to drink but was immediately harassed by BLPH and HOSPs (peculiarly). Last seen flying into small mulefat and sandbar willow patch."
