The Magdalena antbird (Myrmeciza palliata) is a species of bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found in Colombia and Venezuela. It was formerly considered conspecific with the dull-mantled antbird, but studies by Chaves et al. determined it to be a distinct species based on differing song types and mtDNA analysis.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
