The bird's natural habitats are subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland and arable land. The Abyssinian longclaw is very similar in both appearance and behavior to the yellow-throated longclaw (Macronyx croceus) of other parts of Africa. It is a common grassland bird of the western and south eastern highlands of Ethiopia except in the extreme north where it does not occur.
It is threatened by habitat loss.
