Brown-capped Vireo has a very large geographic range, and a very large population size; consequently the IUCN Red List status is of Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). Similarly, in Mexico, populations are no threatened.

The relative abundance of Brown-capped Vireo is assessed as fairly common to common throughout its range (Hilty and Brown 1986, Stiles and Skutch 1989, Howell and Webb 1995, Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a, Hilty 2003, Schulenberg et al. 2010).

Effects of human activity on populations

Human activity probably has little short term effect on Brown-capped Vireo; no threats to this species have been identified (BirdLife International 2013).
