Rare Bird Alert is a 2011 bluegrass album by Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring guest appearances by Paul McCartney and The Dixie Chicks. This is Martin's second consecutive musical album, and comprises 13 songs. His first all-music album was 2009's The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo. Rare Bird Alert was first released on March 15, 2011. The album was nominated for a Grammy on November 30, 2011 (Best Bluegrass Album). "King Tut" is a new bluegrass arrangement of a song that had been a Billboard Top 20 hit for Martin in 1978.

All songs written by Steve Martin except where noted.

A Deluxe Limited Edition was released and is packaged in a full length vinyl LP in gatefold packaging, and includes a limited edition t-shirt, novelty cards and DRM-free digital downloads of the entire album. Other editions include a mixed variety between vinyl, CD and digital download.

"Jubilation Day" was made into an animated music video depicting the heads of Steve Martin, along with the Steep Canyon Rangers, over the bodies of various birds.
