Range Description

Turdoides longirostris has a fragmented distribution in the terai of central Nepal and north and north-east India (BirdLife International 2001). Although described as locally common in the 19th century, recent records come from just three areas, in Nepal (where its declining population is estimated at 1,440-2,160 individuals, based on surveys in 2005 [C. Inskipp and H. Baral in litt. 2012]), at Gorumara NP and Singalila NP in Bengal (M. Prince in litt. 2002, P. Lobo in litt. 2003), and also in Assam. There are unconfirmed historical reports from Bangladesh and Myanmar.
