The eastern nicator (Nicator gularis) is a species of songbird in the Nicatoridae family. It is found in Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Somalia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, dry savanna, and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland. One recent record from Satara Camp, Kruger National Park, South Africa.[2]

This species was formerly called the "yellow-spotted nicator" although this is no longer the case, with that name now belonging solely to the central African western nicator.
