Range Description

Poospiza rubecula has been found at a few scattered localities in west Peru (south Cajamarca, La Libertad, Ancash, Lima and Ica [Clements and Shany 2001]). It is very rare, occurring at low densities even at known sites, and the population is apparently very small. It breeds in the Zrate forest, Lima, where six birds have been recorded, which is more than at any other locality (Barrio 1995).
