The Aberdare cisticola is 12-15 centimeters (5-6 inches) in length, and weighs 18-24 grams (0.6-0.8 ounces). It is a large and stocky cisticola with a heavy bill, plain face, boldly striped underparts, and a medium-long graduated tail. Its voice is a mixture of peeuu tew tew and other short trills.
The Aberdene cisticola is believed to be monogamous, solitary, and territorial. It breeds from January through May and August through November, building a nest out of a flimsy ball of branches and leaves.
