The green-backed eremomela (Eremomela canescens) is a member of the Cisticolidae. This bird is a common resident breeder in tropical Africa from Kenya to Cameroon and southern Sudan.

This tiny passerine is typically found in open woodland. The green-backed eremomela builds a cup-shaped nest of leaves and silk low in a bush or tree. The normal clutch is two eggs.
