Possibly the rarest endemic bird in Colombia, inhabiting lowland & foothill humid forests below 2000m in the north (Santa Marta Mountains), low & mid-Magdalena Valley.

Most recent records are from ProAve´s Blue-billed Curassow Reserve in Puerto Pinzon (state of Boyaca), private farms in the Rio Claro & Doradal area (state of Antioquia) and Tayrona National Park & foothills of the Santa Marta Mountains.
