- Order: Passeriformes
- Family: Troglodytidae
Bar-winged Wood-Wren has a small geographic range, and, because of its specialized habitat requirements, has a patchy distribution. Its IUCN Red List status is assessed as Near Threatened (BirdLife International 2012).
On the other hand, Bar-winged Wood-Wren usually is common where it occurs; its relative abundance is assessed as "fairly common" in Ecuador (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a) and as "plentiful" at the type locality in Peru (Fitzpatrick et al. 1977).
Effects of human activity on populations
Bar-winged Wood-Wren, like other forest species, is vulnerable to habitat loss or degradation. Most areas where it occurs, however, are not under immediate threat from human pressure.
