Range Description

Lamprolia victoriae is endemic to Fiji, being common and widespread on Taveuni (nominate victoriae) but highly localised on Vanua Levu (subspecies kleinschmidti), where it is restricted to the Natewa Peninsula and does not occur in remaining apparently suitable habitat in the south-east (J. S. Kretzschmar in litt. 1998). In 1973 and 1975, it was readily found in groups of 2-5 (Heather 1977). In 1990, a total of 235 birds were located (Thorpe et al. 1990). More recently, its population in the Natewa Peninsula was estimated at 3,000-6,000 pairs (J. S. Kretzschmar in litt. 2000). On Taveuni, where relatively little forest has been lost, 5,000-8,000 pairs were estimated in 2000 (G. Dutson in litt. 2005).
