Range Description

Buceros hydrocorax is endemic to the Philippines where it occurs on Luzon and Marinduque (Collar et al. 1999). It is still patchily common, notably in the Sierra Madre mountains, though it has been reported to have declined drastically (del Hoyo et al. 2001). It may now barely persist on Marinduque (J-C. Gonzalez in litt. 2013). Remaining strongholds are the Sierra Madre and the Cordillera (J-C. Gonzalez in litt. 2013, J. Ibanez in litt. 2014).
