The southern yellow grosbeak (Pheucticus chrysogaster), also known as golden-bellied grosbeak or golden grosbeak, is a species of grosbeaks in the Cardinalidae family. It is very similar to, and has sometimes been considered conspecific with, the Mexican yellow grosbeak.

The southern yellow grosbeak is found in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, and heavily degraded former forest.
