The collared finchbill (Spizixos semitorques) is a species of songbird in the Pycnonotidae family. It is found in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

The species favors hilled forests at moderate elevations. Primarily a frugivore, the collared finchbill also eats seeds and insects. The birds are typically monogamous, with females building nests in trees in which to lay their eggs.[2]
