Conservation Status

Considered separate species by BirdLife International, the conservation statuses of the three subspecies groups were assessed separately, and are reported as such here.

Black-throated Tit (Black-throated)

Not globally threatened (Least Concern). Generally fairly common to common, and locally abundant; very rare on Mount Victoria (western Myanmar). Presence (subspecies manipurensis) in Meghalaya and Cachar, in northeastern India, suspected, but confirmation required. This species has a very large range within which its numbers are believed to be stable. No significant threats have been identified.

Black-throated Tit (Red-headed)

Not globally threatened (Least Concern). Fairly common to abundant. Mean density of 1.4 breeding pairs/km has been recorded in Bhutan. Although this species’ population size within its large range has not been quantified, its numbers are suspected to be stable. There is no known evidence for any declines or substantial threats.

Black-throated Tit (Gray-crowned)

Not globally threatened (Least Concern). Fairly common. Although its global population size has not been assessed, this species is thought not to be at any immediate risk. No declines have been noted and no significant threats have been identified. Recently recorded in eastern Cambodia, where it is presumed to have been previously overlooked.
