Range Description

Ficedula subrubra is endemic to the Indian subcontinent, breeding in the north-west Himalayas, the Neelum Valley and Kaz-i-nag Range in Pakistan, Kashmir, and the Pir Panjal range in India. The species migrates south to winter chiefly in the hills of central-southern Sri Lanka, and also the southern Western Ghats, particularly in the Nilgiri Hills north of the Palghat Gap, India (Zarri 2003), and also Siruvani Reserve Forest and Silent Valley National Park in the Nilgiri Biosphere reserve (Sashikumar et. al. 2011). It occurs on passage in Nepal and, as a vagrant, in Bhutan. Formerly common within its restricted breeding range, it has declined in many areas.
