Justification
This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

White-winged potoo

The white-winged potoo (Nyctibius leucopterus) is a species of bird in the Nyctibiidae family, the potoos. It is found in Roraima and Amazonas, Brazil and Guyana in the Amazon Basin; also localised populations in Peru and French Guiana.

White-winged potoo's natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

White-winged potoo range[edit]

Roraima and Amazonas Brazil[edit]

The main range of the white-winged potoo is the central Amazon Basin at the confluence of four rivers, from the Rio Negro on the north, to the Madeira River on the south, in eastern regions of Brazil's Amazonas state. Also in the Basin, upstream localised populations occur west of the Madeira river near Bolivia, also northwestwards into the border areas of Peru, and in northern Peru.

The main contiguous range extends north from the Amazon River proper and the confluences, into eastern Roraima state, and east of Roraima's main southerly flowing Branco River. The range extends north into central Guyana; the white-winged potoo's range in this northern strip is about 350 km wide and extends into Guyuna 75 km from the Caribbean coast. The range is in the north-flowing Essequibo River drainage, and the western higher regions of the drainage; it is not in the central river drainage proper, only downstream, and Guyana's southern highlands upstream.
