The Red-fronted Antpecker (Parmoptila rubrifrons) is a songbird species found in western Africa. Like all antpeckers, it is tentatively placed in the of estrildid finch family (Estrildidae). It used to contain its eastern relative Jameson's Antpecker as a subspecies, but these birds are now usually considered a distinct species P. jamesoni.
This bird inhabits subtropical and tropical lowland moist forest in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire. When Jameson's and the Red-fronted antpeckers were still evaluated as one species, they were classified as a Species of Least Concern by the IUCN. However, the Red-fronted Antpecker is declining noticeably due to habitat destruction and has entirely disappeared from Mali for example. Therefore its status has been changed to Near Threatened after the taxonomic split.
