Range Description

Cistothorus apolinari is found locally in the East Andes of Colombia (Boyac and Cundinamarca). Current strongholds are at Laguna de Tota (Boyac) and Laguna de Fquene (Cundinamarca) - the population in each probably exceeding 50 pairs - and several populations of up to 20 pairs are present in the remnant wetlands around Bogot(F. G. Stiles in litt. 1999). It has been extirpated from at least two sites since 1950, and numbers have fallen at several formerly important sites.
