Range Description

Elaenia ridleyana is confined to the Atlantic archipelago of Fernando de Noronha, Brazil, where it is known from the main island and Ilha Rata, the largest associated islet (Olson 1994). It is reportedly the least common of the three resident landbirds. Population estimates vary between slightly over 100 (Ridgely and Tudor 1994) and c.1,000 individuals (Oren 1984). Probably the most comprehensive survey estimated a population of c.480 birds (Antas et al. 1990), although a more recent estimate has suggested a population of c.750 birds (T. Mark in litt. 2003).
