The grey-tailed piha (Snowornis subalaris) is a species of bird in the family Cotingidae.

It is found in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Population degradation[edit]

Because of current and future deforestation in the Amazon Basin, the population is expected to decline by 25-30% over the next three generations, causing this species to be listed as near threatened.[2]
