Niels Kaare Krabbe (born 1 July 1951) is an ornithologist and bird conservationist for many years based at the Vertebrate Department of the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen and tutored by Jon Fjeldså. His research interests include various aspects of ornithology, especially bioacoustics, conservation, and systematics and altitudinal replacements of Scytalopus tapaculos. He has spent many years in the Andes, especially Ecuador, and wrote the passerine section of Birds of the High Andes (1990) and the accounts of most Andean species in Threatened Birds of the Americas (1992). Since 1998 he has worked with Fundación de Conservación Jocotoco on conservation of Ecuadorian birds, paying special attention to the Pale-headed Brush-Finch (Atlapetes pallidiceps), for which he had searched for several years, finally finding a small population of in 1998. The species was then on the verge of extinction with only 10-22 pairs remaining, but owing to conservation efforts, it is now recuperating, with ca. 100 pairs counted since 2009, when the reserve became saturated with territories. He has authored or coauthored several bioacoustic publications and peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals.
