Physical Characteristics, Diet, Behavior And Reproduction, Conservation Status, Stripe-headed Rhabdornis (rhabdornis Mysticalis): Species AccountGEOGRAPHIC RANGE, HABITAT, PHILIPPINE CREEPERS AND PEOPLE


Philippine creepers are limited to the range of the major Philippine Islands of Luzon, Samar, Leyte, Mindanao, Negros, and Panay and of the minor islands of Catanduanes, Masbate, Calicoan, Dinagat, Basilan, and Bohol.

Philippine creepers inhabit deep, dense, tropical primary and secondary lowland and mountainous forests, along with the edges of forests. They specifically prefer the upper levels, including the canopy (uppermost level of vegetation of the forest) and the crown (top part of the forest) of trees and the middle story (middle part) of the forest.

Philippine creepers have no special significance to people.
