Range DescriptionDucula carola is endemic to the Philippines. It occurs patchily on Luzon, Mindoro, Sibuyan, Negros, Siquijor and Mindanao. Since 1980, there have been records from 12 sites on Luzon, Mindoro and Mindanao. On northern Luzon, it was fairly common in the late 19th century. By the 1990s, it had become rare and local in the Sierra Madre mountains, although flocks of 20 were still recorded regularly at Angat Dam. There is evidence of a decline on Mindanao and, although common as recently as the 1950s on Negros, it was not found during recent surveys there, and may now be extinct on Sibuyan, Mindoro and Siquijor.
