The Southern Red Bishop or Red Bishop is a small passerine bird belonging to the bishop and widowbird genus ''Euplectes'' in the weaver family Ploceidae. It is common in wetlands and grassland in Africa south of the Equator. North of the Equator, it is replaced by the Northern Red Bishop or Orange Bishop which was formerly regarded as a subspecies of this species.
