The IUCN Red List status for Mexican Woodnymph is Vulnerable (BirdLife International 2015) due to its small range (14,500 km2) and continued habitat loss. It has a world breeding population of 6000-15,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). It is considered Threatened under Mexican law (NOM-059 SEMARNAT 2010). This is also a species of high tri-national concern (Mexico-U.S.-Canada) to Partners in Flight (Berlanga et al. 2010), as a species at greatest risk of extinction. Based on determinations of habitat loss, Berlanga et al. (2010) estimated that 15-49% of its population has been lost in Mexico during the last century.
