  1. Red List Team (BirdLife International) says:

    Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this discussion. We greatly appreciate the time and effort invested by so many people in commenting. The window for consultation is now closed. We will analyse and interpret the new information and post a preliminary decision on this species’s Red List status on this page in early July.

    Thank you once again,
    BirdLife Red List Team

    Preliminary proposal

    Based on available information, our preliminary proposal for the 2021 Red List would be to list Black-spectacled Brush-finch as Near Threatened, approaching the threshold for listing as threatened under Criteria B1b(iii,v); C2a(i).

    Under the assumption that the total population size is closer to the lower end of the estimate, the largest subpopulation may number below 1,000 mature individuals, and therefore the species may additionally be assessed as approaching the threshold for a threatened status under Criterion C2a(i).

    There is now a period for further comments until the final deadline in late July, after which the recommended categorisations will be put forward to IUCN.

    The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.

    Recommended categorisation to be put forward to IUCN

    The final categorisation for this species has not changed. Black-spectacled Brush-finch is recommended to be listed as Near Threatened, approaching the threshold for listing as threatened under Criteria B1b(iii,v); C2a(i).

    Many thanks for everyone who contributed to the 2021 GTB Forum process. The final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.
