Woodcreepers: Dendrocolaptidae

Conservation Status

The moustached woodcreeper is considered Vulnerable, facing a high risk of extinction in the wild. It occupies areas of eastern Brazil, where populations have declined due primarily to large-scale logging and habitat destruction for farming. Another species, the greater scythebill, is considered Near Threatened, likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future, because of habitat destruction. In addition, a number of other woodcreeper species have also suffered recent declines in numbers but are not yet considered in danger of extinction.
