Range Description

Ducula carola is endemic to the Philippines, where it is known from Luzon, Mindoro, Sibuyan, Negros, Siquijor and Mindanao (Collar et al. 1999). Since 1980, there have been records from at least 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 it may have been extirpated on Sibuyan and Mindoro. The race nigrorum of the Visayas is likely to be extinct: although common as recently as the 1950s on Negros, it was not found during recent surveys there (Evans et al. 1993), and it is very likely to be extinct on Siquijor (D. Allen in litt. 2012).
