Range Description

Psophia leucoptera is restricted to west-central Amazonia, west of the Madeira and south of the Amazon/Solimesin Brazil, west into north-eastern Bolivia, and through Amazonian Peru, north to the Maranon (Sherman 1996). Densities of c.8 birds/km2 have been recorded in ideal conditions in Manu National Park, Peru. The population size has apparently not been quantified, but it has been noted to have become rare or absent in areas where it was once common, and it is suspected to be in decline owing to habitat loss and hunting pressure (Sherman 1996).
