|Scientific Name:||Basilornis mirandus|
|Species Authority:||(Hartert, 1903)|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Gender agreement of species name follows David and Gosselin (2002b).|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Near Threatened ver 3.1|
|Reviewer/s:||Butchart, S. & Symes, A.|
This species is considered Near Threatened as it has a highly restricted and fragmented range, being known from only a small number of sites. Although its habitats are currently largely secure, the situation should be monitored carefully, as any increase in the rate of human intrusion could have a significant negative effect on this species.
|Range Description:||Basilornis mirandus is endemic to Mindanao, Philippines, where it is common within suitable habitats, including at Daggayan, Mt Kitanglad and Mt Apo.|

|Population:||The population size of this species has not been quantified, but it is described as common at some sites.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is found above 1,250 m in forest and forest edge, even in cut-over areas.|
|Major Threat(s):||The habitats occupied by this species are apparently secure as a result of their rugged and inaccessible nature. However, some logging and clearance for agriculture may have occurred in lower parts of the elevational range.|
Conservation Actions Underway
Conservation Actions Proposed
Conduct repeated surveys within the range to determine current distribution and abundance, as well as assess population trends and rates of habitat loss. Conduct ecological studies to improve understanding of its precise habitat requirements, particularly tolerance of secondary habitats and response to fragmentation. Protect areas of suitable habitat, especially at lower elevations within the species's altitudinal range, and safeguard against logging and encroachment.
