Demography and Populations

A global population size for the Cinnamon Tanager has not been determined; however, the population appears to be stable (BirdLife International 2015). Parker et al. (1996) categorize Cinnamon Tanager as "fairly common" relative to other Neotropical birds with a center of abundance in the lower tropical zone. Generation length is estimated at 3.7 years (BirdLife International 2015). No information available on age at first breeding, survivorship, parasitism, or population regulation.
