Range Description

Coccyzus ferrugineus is endemic to Cocos Island, c.500 km from the coast of Costa Rica. It is widespread and probably under-recorded in suitable habitat, but the extent of such habitat is very limited (F. G. Stiles in litt. 1999). The total population is probably significantly below 1,000 individuals, and it is the least common of the endemic land birds on the island.
