Effects of human activity on populations

Parker et al. (1996) considered Blue-gray Tanager to have a low degree of sensitivity to human disturbance relative to other Neotropical birds. Blue-gray Tanagers are also known for living near the coffee plantations in both western and eastern sloped of Andes of Venezuela, which increases their chance of interaction with humans (Jones et al. 2002). They are also usually found in suburban edges and outskirts of forests
