Range Description

Cypseloides cherriei has been recorded from the Pacific slope of the Cordillera Central and Cordillera de Talamanca in Costa Rica, Cordillera de la Costa in Aragua, Venezuela, three sites in Santander, Cauca and Boyac (Chvez-Portilla et al. 2007), Colombia, and two sites in west Pichincha and Napo (Christmas Bird Count unpublished data), Ecuador. Breeding has only been proven at single sites in Costa Rica and Venezuela and two sites in Ecuador (Greeney 2004), where birds are presumed to be resident. It is almost certainly under-recorded, and its status and distribution in areas between the widely spaced known localities should be investigated (Stiles and Skutch 1989).
