Demography and Populations

Parker et al. (1996) categorize the Opal-rumped Tanager as "uncommon" relative to other Neotropical birds, with its center of abundance in the lower tropical elevational zone. Populations in the Amazon are patchily distributed (Parker et al. 1996). There is no information related to topics such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation.
