Range Description

Gallinago nobilis occurs in the northern Andes of South America, from north-western Venezuela through central Colombia and into Ecuador. No population estimates are available, but the species is described as uncommon to fairly numerous (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001, Hilty 2003, Restall et al. 2006). No movements are known and the species is presumably sedentary (del Hoyo et al. 1996). Localised declines have been noted in recent years, for example at La Mica Lagoon in Ecuador (Cisneros-Heredia 2006).
