Authors: Soberanes, C., M. C. Arizmendi, and Thomas S. Schulenberg


Conservation status

Sinaloa Wren has a large geographic range and is common (Howell and Webb 1995, BirdLife International 2015); consequently its IUCN Red List status is Least Concern. It is not considered to be threatened under Mexican law (SEMARNAT 2010). 

Effects of human activity on populations

Habitat loss, fragmentation, or degradation are potential theats to all species that occupy tropical deciduous forest in Mexico, although Sinaloa Wren can occupy scrub and second growth, and so perhaps is less vulnerable than are some other species of these forests.
