Demography and Populations

Introduction

Scaled Ground-Cuckoo is considered rare (Parker et al. 1996); however, there is no further information on density or global population. This could be due, in part, to some sources, such as BirdLife International, not recognizing N. squamiger as a species separate from Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo N. geoffroyi and, thus, not tabulating information on these distinct populations (see Related Species).
