White-bibbed Manakin Corapipo leucorrhoa

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Pipridae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Juan Alejandro Morales-Betancourt


Conservation Status

Not globally threatened. Nonetheless, it has been suggested a decreasing trend in current population (BirdLife International 2012). Rosselli (1994) suggest this species might be very vulnerable to extinction owing to habitat alteration.

Effects of human activity on populations

White-bibbed Manakin inhabits areas where forest destruction and fragmentation suppose a threat to this species. The population has been very seriously reduced in north western South America as a result of forest destruction and fragmentation (del Hoyo et al. 2004, BirdLife International 2012).
