Range Description

Indicator xanthonotus occurs in Pakistan (possibly a seasonal or nomadic visitor; there are no recent records), Nepal (local and uncommon), India (very rare and local), Bhutan (local and uncommon), China (rare in south-east Tibet) and Myanmar (rare resident in the north) (BirdLife International 2001). It is generally assumed to be a rare species, although easily overlooked due to its inconspicuous behaviour and it may be more common than the paucity of records suggest.
