That looks like actual sprawling, which at least some *Acrocephalus* species 
can do -- they live in reeds and otherwise, well, couldn't live there. What 
bird is that in the figure? Isn't it one of them?

(*Acrocephalus* is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acrocephalus -- its 
unusual abilities aren't mentioned there.)

(...As you'll see there, *Acrocephalus* also has an intercode homonym. But 
never mind.)
