The Fiji shrikebill (Clytorhynchus vitiensis) is a songbird species in the family Monarchidae. The Manu'a shrikebill, subspecies powelli (which may well be a distinct species) may have gone extinct in the 1990 due to habitat destruction.

It is found in American Samoa, Fiji, and Tonga. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
