    Product Description

    Conservation Status: Vulnerable

    Geographic Range: Endemic to Samar, Leyte, Bohol, Panaon, Biliran, Calicoan and Buad (race semigaleatus), Dinagat, Siargao, Mindanao (plus Balut, Bucas and Talicud) and Basilan (race mindanensis)

    With fragmented populations, these birds are constantly under threat due to habitat loss, leading to a lack of suitable nesting trees. As with the Talarak, they are difficult to breed in captivity, with us having only one successful breeding thus far.
