Range Description

Galbula pastazae occurs in the foothills and subtropical zone of the Andean east slope in Ecuador (Napo, Tungurahua, Morona-Santiago, Zamora-Chinchipe, Loja) (Ridgely et al. 1998), two adjacent east-slope valleys in Colombia (Putumayo [P.G.W.Salaman in litt. 1999] and Nario), and the Cordillera del Cndor in Peru (Schulenberg and Awbrey 1997). Except in Podocarpus National Park, Loja, where it is described as fairly common, the species is generally uncommon (Poulsen and Wege 1994, Schulenberg and Awbrey 1997, Ridgely et al. 1998) and local, and presumably declining as a result of habitat loss.
