Range Description

Cercomacra carbonaria is limited to middle sections of the rio Branco and some of its tributaries in Roraima, extreme north Brazil, and adjacent Guyana. It ranges from Caracarai in the south, along the rio Branco and rio Tacutu to the Ireng river in Guyana, less than 2 km from its confluence with the rio Tacutu (Zimmer et al. 1997b). It has been found on the rio Mucaja, and also along the rio Parime and the rio Uraricoera (Grosset and Minns 2002, Vale et al. 2007). Given the recent increase in records from a wider geographic area the estimated extent of available habitat has been increased to 723 km2, it is fairly common within this range, (c.80 individuals per km2) extrapolations indicate that the population is c.15,000 individuals (Vale et al. 2007).
