The Red-faced Warbler is a species of New World warbler that lives in mountainous regions of Mexico and Central America, and into parts of Arizona and New Mexico in the United States. They prefer a coniferous or pine and oak forest habitat.
Red-faced Warblers are fairly colorful little birds, named for the bright red face feathers. Males and females look alike for the most part, though females tend to be duller.
Details & Statistics
The Red-faced Warbler is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2012 by BirdLife International. This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size is very large, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
