Jerdon's bush chat (Saxicola jerdoni) is a species of bird in the family Muscicapidae.
The common name commemorates the surgeon-naturalist Thomas C. Jerdon.
The Jerdon's bush chat has an extremely large range and is native to Bangladesh, China, India, Laos, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam. The species is possibly extinct in Myanmar.
The Sukla Phanta National Park in Nepal represents the western limit of its distribution.
