Its call is very loud and distinctive, in fact the Argentine name reflects the call 'Benteveo'.

It is a chunky bird of around 22cm with bright yellow underparts and brown upperparts.  The head is blackish grey with a prominent white supercilium and a white throat.  

The species is associated with water and is able to hover.
