Range Description

Malaconotus alius occurs only in the Uluguru Mountains, Tanzania. Its core habitat is within the newly formed Uluguru Nature Reserve (previously split into the Uluguru North, Uluguru South and Bunduki Forest Reserves) and an adjacent unprotected forest area, however this may now have lost most of its habitat. In 1999-2000, a census estimated a population of 1,200 pairs (Burgess et al. 2001); repeat surveys in 2006 and 2007 found that the population had not changed in numbers significantly (J. John in litt. 2007), but located the species in the southern end of the Ulugurus, extending the known range (J. John unpubl. data).
