Scarlet-breasted Dacnis Dacnis berlepschi


Demography and Populations

The Scarlet-breasted Dacnis has long been considered rare (Meyer de Schauensee 1951). Total population estimates vary, with some reports as low as 2,500-9,999 total individuals (Vogt and Ahlman 2006), to as high as 35,400-141,600 individuals (BirdLife International 2017). Suspected population declines of 30% have occurred over the last decade, and this trend is expected to continue (BirdLife International 2017).
