White-winged Potoo

White-winged Potoo's natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

The White-winged Potoo is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

his travel journal (Wied 1821) of a White-winged Potoo from that re- gion, I believe that the Caravelas bird was the N. griseus, which Wied decided later must be conspecific with the type N. leucopterus. The type itself presum- ably came from somewhere along the route between Conquista and Salvador, the expedition's last leg, which included Nazareth (Bokermann 1957). There is reason to suspect that Wied himself never observed the species in the wild and that the skin may have been brought to him by an unidentified party. More

In particular, populations of white-winged potoos in the forests of the Bahia region of southeastern Brazil must now be endangered if they are not already extinct, and the widespread long-tailed potoo (Nyctibius aethereus) is reported to be rare in most parts of its range. Significance to humans Potoos have little economic importance. Their loud nocturnal voices are well known to local people, although potoos' calls are often attributed to other animals such as sloths.

the White-winged Potoo's range in this northern strip is about 350 km wide and extends into Guyuna 75 km from the Caribbean coast. The range is in the north-flowing Essequibo River drainage, and the western higher regions of the drainage; it is not in the central river drainage proper, only downstream, and Guyana's southern highlands upstream.
