The Paria Whitestart (Myioborus pariae), also known as the Yellow-faced Whitestart, is a species of bird in the Parulidae family. It is endemic to the Paria Peninsula in Venezuela, where it occurs in humid forests, especially near the edge. It is sometimes known by the less accurate names Paria Redstart or Yellow-faced Redstart. It is threatened by on-going habitat loss within its tiny range.
