VULNERABLE. Restricted-range species: present in Andaman Islands EBA. Not uncommon in suitable forest habitat. Transect surveys undertaken in 1993 and 1994 located 36 individuals on a total of nine islands, including main islands of Middle Andaman and South Andaman and smaller Baratang I. Readily encountered in appropriate habitat, with no lack of recent records (2). Global population put at 250–1000 mature individuals BirdLife International (2018) Species factsheet: Dendrocitta bayleii. Downloaded from http://www.birdlife.org on 12/01/2018. . Forest destruction is widespread on the larger, most populated island of South Andaman. Several forest reserves and protected areas have been created on the islands. The future of this forest species depends on enforcement of logging restrictions.
