Ethiopian Boubou appears to be less restricted to dense vegetation than Tropical Boubou (Laniarius major) (15). It uses woody cover along waterways, thickets and overgrown hedges in farmland and gardens, and dense growth around termitaria and around the bases of isolated hills rising from flat areas; also uses elephant grass and tangles of creepers along the edges of lowland forest and shrubby hillside ravines; tall grass savanna, miombo (Brachystegia) woods, and dry Acacia-Commiphora shrubland. In the highlands, it occurs in Hagenia forest, Arundinaria bamboo, mixed evergreen scrub of olive (Olea), juniper (Juniperus), and Podocarpus, as well as bracken-briar and forest edges. It occurs from sea-level to mountains, up to to 3,000 m in Kenya and 3,030 m in Ethiopia (16).
