Range Description

Alopecoenaskubaryi is endemic to the Federated States of Micronesia, occurring on the islands of Pohnpei, where the population was estimated at 841 birds in 1983-1984, and Chuuk (Truk), where it was estimated to number 294 in 1983-1984 (Engbring et al. 1990). In 1994, a repeat survey on Pohnpei recorded a decrease in encounter rate in the lowlands (F. Amidon in litt. 2007, Buden in prep.). A Chuuk population estimate in 2001 indicated a significantly smaller population (G. Dutson in litt. 2001). Populations have probably always been low, at least in historical times (Baker 1951, Engbring et al. 1990).
