Longclaws are slender, often colorful, ground-feeding insectivores of open country. They are ground nesters, laying up to four speckled eggs.
They are named for their unusually long hind claws, which are thought to help in walking on grass.
There are only between 10,000 and 19,000 Sharpe's longclaw left in Kenya.
