Very little is known about the demography of Fawn-breasted Tanager. Their lifespan is 3.7 years (BirdLife International 2015). Screens for blood parasites and avian ticks have only produced negative results (Bennett and Lopez 1980, Flores et al. 2014). Parker et al. (1996) categorize the Pipraeidea melanonota as fairly common relative to other Neotropical birds with a center of abundance in the middle montane zone. No information available on age at first breeding, survivorship, parasitism, or population regulation for Fawn-breasted Tanager.
