Thryothorus nicefori

27 April, 2007


niceforiNiceforo’s Wren (Thryophilus nicefori) is endemic to Colombia but is little known and considered critically endangered, registered in historical records only in riparian forests and xerophytic thickets of the municipality of San Gil (Santander).

The actions being implemented by the Foundation on this species are:

– Research in San Gil (Santander) making the first record describing the vocalization of the species. As a result of this investigation it was possible to identify habitat fragmentation as the main threat to the species and environmental education campaigns were recommended with communities in the range where the species is found.

– Studies have been conducted to find the species in new areas; studies have been conducted to determine population size, distribution and threats to the species.
