Ocellated Thrasher has a relatively small range, and the population trend is unknown. Nonetheless this species is sufficiently widespread, and its population size is sufficiently large, that its IUCN Red List conservation status is evaluated as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2014). It also is not considered to be threatened under Mexican law (SEMARNAT 2010).

Effects of human activity on populations

It is difficult to evaluate the effects of human activities on Ocellated Thrasher, in view of the lack of information on population trends in this species, or on the effects to Ocellated Thrasher of habitat disturbance or fragementation.
