The Abyssinian Longclaw, Macronyx flavicollis, is a species of bird in the Motacillidae family. It is endemic to Ethiopia.
The bird's natural habitats are subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland and arable land. The Abyssinian Longclaw is very similar in both appearance and behavior to the Yellow-throated Longclaw (Macronyx croceus) of other parts of Africa. It is a common grassland bird of the western and south eastern highlands of Ethiopia except in the extreme north where it does not occur.
It is threatened by habitat loss.
