Adult female near Bwindi (Uganda)
Jameson's Antpecker (Parmoptila jamesoni) is a songbird species found in central Africa. Like all antpeckers, it is tentatively placed in the of estrildid finch family (Estrildidae). It used to be included as a subspecies in P. rubrifrons (Red-fronted Antpecker) and the common name "Jameson's Antpecker" was often used for both taxa. But today, they are usually considered distinct species.
Jameson's Antpecker inhabits tropical lowland moist forest in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 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. Unlike its western relative which is declining noticeably, P. jamesoni is still common and widespread. Therefore its status has not changed after its elevation to a full species.
