SPECIES INFO

The Royal Cinclodes (Cinclodes aricomae) is a passerine bird which breeds in the Andes of south-east Peru and adjacent Bolivia. It was formerly considered to be a subspecies of the Stout-billed Cinclodes C. excelsior.

This bird has a population of less than 250, and is classified as Critically Endangered. It is confined to tiny, humid patches of Polylepis woodland and montane scrub, and the major threat to tis survival is the use of fire and heavy grazing which restrict the regeneration of Polylepis.
