This species can readily be distinguished from the next, as the whole crown is streaked with black and white, whereas that of the Long-bill is uniformly colored.
Both species are marsh birds, at home among the reeds, to which they attach their globular woven nests, with the little entrance in the side.
The eggs of this species are pure white. It is found in eastern N.A. from the Gulf to southern Canada.
