  1. I agree with the Near Threatened proposal for Crested Guan. This species in El Salvador is restricted to El Imposible National Park, in the southwestern part of the country. There is no updated data on the population status in that park; the existing data are from 20 years ago and reported the existence of more than 50 specimens (Komar & Herrera 2003). It was suspected that there might still be a population in the southeast, in the hills of Jucuarán, but recent searches have been carried out in 2006, 2012, 2018 and 2020 without any success.
