At the global level the IUCN Red List conservation status of Blue Seedeater is considered as of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). Populations are considered as stable but the population trend remains unquantified. Blue Seedeater is considered Endangered, however, under Mexican law (NOM-059 SEMARNAT 2010). This is also a species of high concern to Partners in Flight (Berlanga et al. 2010). 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.
Effects of human activity on populations
The population size of Blue Seedeater may be in decline, due to trends in forest fragmentation and destruction (BirdLife International 2013). The primary source of forest habitat fragmentation and loss is clearing for agriculture and livestock grazing.
