Gilt-edged Tanager Tangara cyanoventris



Conservation Status

The Gilt-edged Tanager is listed as a species of least concern by the IUCN (BirdLife International 2014). The reason for this categorization is because they have a large range and less than 30% population decline over ten years (BirdLife International 2014). Their exact population size is unknown, but it is believed to be greater than 10,000 mature individuals and therefore this species does not meet the population size criterion to be considered vulnerable by the IUCN (BirdLife International 2014). Despite this, their range has become very fragmented and the bulk of the populations exist on protected land (Hilty 2011).

Effects of human activity on populations

Parker et al. (1996) considered the Gilt-edged Tanager to have a medium degree of sensitivity to human disturbance relative to other Neotropical birds.
