The East Andean antbird (Drymophila caudata) is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found at high levels in humid highland forests, especially near bamboo, and is endemic to the western slope of the Eastern Andes and the Upper Magdalena Valley in Caquetá and Huila in Colombia. This 15 cm (5.9 in) bird is found at high elevations of about 1,500-2,500 m. It was formerly considered conspecific with the Klages's antbird, the Santa Marta antbird, and the streak-headed antbird and together called the long-tailed antbird.
