Range Description

Crypsirina cucullata is endemic to the dry zone of central Myanmar, on the plains of the Irrawaddy and Sittang Rivers (BirdLife International 2001). It was formerly common, but has declined sharply as a result of habitat loss through agricultural development. However, recent surveys have found it to remain locally common in extensive areas of suitable habitat.
