Banded Ground Cuckoo

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montanes. It is threatened by habitat loss.

The Banded Ground Cuckoo is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Banded Ground Cuckoo occurs in Colombia as well as Ecuador where it lives in wet foothill forests. Although the bird makes use of secondary vegetation, it seems that the species depends on primary forests, which are rapidly disappearing or becoming degraded. This habitat loss is the reason the Banded Ground Cuckoo is classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. More
