The Gray-chinned Minivet is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Gray-chinned Minivet has black areas replaced by dark gray-brown, the lower back and rump are greenish-yellow, and the wing patch and underparts are bright yellow. The Gray-chinned Minivet prefers open forest, forest edge and secondary growth. It feeds on insects, foraging in the canopy of the forest, picking prey from the terminal foliage, and also making short flights to capture flying termites and other insects. More
