Demography and Populations

Very little information is known regarding populations and demography. No estimates of age of first breeding, life span or survivorship have been reported. Speckled Tanagers are thought to be most abundant in Venezuela and northern Colombia, but the species is locally common in appropriate habitat throughout its range (Ridgely and Gwynne 1989).
