Lamprotornis cupreocauda is restricted to the Upper Guinea forests of West Africa, from southern Guinea through south-eastern Sierra Leone, Liberia and southern Côte d'Ivoire, to south-western Ghana2. It is generally common, with 2-4 pairs/km2 recorded in mature forest in Liberia4. In Côte d'Ivoire, it is abundant in Taï National Park3, in 1985-1990, it was quite common in Yapo Forest1 and recently it was noted as fairly common in Mt Peko National Park8. In Ghana, it appears common and widespread but may occur in moderate numbers only, with only small flocks of 5-10 individuals recorded in recent surveys5.
