Home range estimated as about 20 ha in northeastern Gabon (1).

Population Status


Occurs at average density of 3 pairs/km² in northeast Gabon (1). In Eswatini, densities at three riverine forest locations were calculated as 13.3 birds/100 ha, 24.6 birds/100 ha, and 57.9 birds/100 ha, respectively (12). Another study from Eswatini that calculated density across the same three sites for each month of the year found that density varied between 12-81 birds/100 ha, with an overall mean of 32 birds/100 ha over the entire year (13). Estimated population in south Mozambique more than 5,000 individuals.
