  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,

    Preliminary proposal

    Based on available information, our preliminary proposal for the 2021 Red List would be to list White-tailed Hummingbird as Near Threatened, approaching the threshold for listing as threatened under Criterion C1.

    The population is preliminarily suspected to number 6,000-15,000 mature individuals. Under the precautionary assumption that the rate of population decline is closer to the upper end of the estimate and hence exceeding 10% over ten years, the species is considered approaching the threshold for listing as threatened under Criterion C1.

    There is now a period for further comments until the final deadline in mid-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. White-tailed Hummingbird is recommended to be listed as Near Threatened, approaching the threshold for listing as threatened under Criterion C1.

    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.
