Overview

Distribution

Range Description

Ficedula disposita is endemic to Luzon, Philippines, where it was considered threatened but is no longer regarded as particularly rare, with records from above Crow Valley, Mt High Peak, Zambales, Minuma, Siagot, Talisis Valley, Dinalongan, Aurora, two sites on the coastal road near Debutunan Point, and Angat Dam. It has now been found (on voice) to be relatively common, e.g. in forest along the main coastal road between Baler and Dinalongan in Aurora.

Justification
This species occupies a moderately small range within which moderately rapid declines are suspeceted owing to forest loss. As a result the species is classified as Near Threatened. However, given its apparent preference for secondary growth an assessment of net changes in forest cover is needed and such and assessment may reveal that downlisting to Least Concern is appropriate.

Threats

Major Threats
Continuing forest loss poses the main threat, although this may be minor given the species ability to adapt to secondary and degraded forest.

Conservation Actions Proposed
Calculate the net rate of loss of all forest types within its range to see if even secondary growth is being cleared. Assess other potential threats and if none are apparent consider revising its status. Protect areas of suitable habitat.
