SPECIES

Puerto Rican Tanager Nesospingus speculiferus

Alcides L. Morales
Version: 1.0 — Published February 24, 2012

Conservation

Listed as Least Concern by the IUCN (BirdLife International 2012). But given that this is an endemic bird with a restricted range and disjunct distribution in the island, it perhaps should be listed as Vulnerable.

Effects of human activity on populations

Not known; apparently deforestation may have fragmented the population.
