Incolornis (meaning "inhabitant bird") is an extinct genus of basal birds from the Late Cretaceous (Coniacian, 89-86 mya). Remains have been found in the Bissekty Formation in Uzbekistan. It is only known from fragmentary coracoids. The systematic position of the genus is unclear; it might have been an enantiornithine bird.

Two species are known, Incolonis silvae and Incolornis martini; the latter was initially placed in the genus Enantiornis. The estimated length of these animals was 135 mm for I. silvae and 220 mm for I. martini.
