Conservation Status

The Cayenne Jay has a large range, and its population trend appears to be stable. Although its population size has not been determined, it is not believed to be near the threshold number for a Vulnerable species. The Cayenne Jay is listed as a species of Least Concern by Birdlife International (2009).

The relative abundance of the Cayenne Jay is assessed as "fairly common" (Ridgely and Tudor 1989), "rather common" (Haverschmidt and Mees 1994), and "fairly common to common" (Hilty 2003).
