Gray-bellied Flowerpiercer Diglossa carbonaria


Demography and Populations

The population size of D. carbonaria has not been quantified, but it is generally assumed that there are at least 10,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2016). Parker et al. (1996) categorize D. carbonaria as common relative to other Neotropical birds, with low sensitivity to human disturbance and a center of abundance in the upper montane zone. No information is on age at first breeding, life span, survivorship, parasitism, or population regulation.
