Demography and Populations

Parker et al. (1996) lists the Black-bellied Tanager as "common" relative to other Neotropical birds with a center of abundance in the hill tropical zone. The population size is unknown, but is considered a stable due its large geographic range and the lack of evidence for any decline in population size (Birdlife International 2016). There is currently no information available on age at first breeding, life span, survivorship, parasitism, or population regulation for Black-bellied Tanager.
