Disease and Body Parasites
In a survey of haemosporidian parasites in the central Philippines, a single tested T. cinnamomea unirufa was negative for all haemosporidians (73). A specimen of T. c. talautensis (RMNH.AVES.84625_1) had 10 cm long threadworms.
The global population size has not been quantified, at the species level or for each subspecies group separately. Terpsiphone c. cinnamomea is noted as being especially common on smaller islands (24). On Samar, it is found in all five watersheds surveyed in Samar National Park (74). It is also present at low abundances in Pasonanca National Park, Zamboanga City, Mindanao (75). T. c. unirufa is considered to be very rare and a low-density species on Mindoro (76) and apparently rare in Bataan, Luzon as well (21). It was reportedly generally scarce but common at Cape Engaño (39). On Talaud, it is common in all wooded habitats on Karakelong (including the unique scrub on Mt. Piapi) and Salebabu in 1995. It is especially common in forest habitats and even in scrub and cultivation fields (69).
It is thought to be stable with no evidence for declines or serious threats, but this has not been evaluated in detail.
