The bananal antbird (Cercomacra ferdinandi) is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae.

It is endemic to the wetlands of the central Araguaia river in Brazil, and has one of the smallest ranges of any Amazon bird.

Its natural habitat is the igapó flooded forest, where it hunts for insects and invertebrates in the understory. It is most abundant in the Cantão wetlands, which form the largest flooded forest of the southeastern Amazon.
