Mountain Grackle

The Mountain Grackle is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Mountain Grackle (Macroagelaius subalaris) is a species of bird in the Icteridae family. It is endemic to Colombia. It eats insects,frogs,and seeds. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. It is threatened by habitat loss and declining in numbers. It was uplisted from Near Threatened to Critically Endangered status in 2000, due to fears of a collapse of the presumably tiny population. More

The Mountain Grackle is endangered, mostly due to habitat loss, and little-studied, though a relatively recent paper indicates that it breeds colonially (link is a PDF). Interestingly, at least one effort to preserve the Cerulean Warbler Dendroica cerulea helps the Mountain Grackle: a reserve on the warbler’s wintering grounds also hosts a population of the endangered grackle! The Red-bellied Grackle Hypopyrrhus pyrohypogaster is, like the Mountain Grackle, endemic to Colombia and endangered. More

Mountain Grackle was found at 22 localities; and Gorgeted Wood-Quail was detected at 20 localities – more than were initially expected. The study concluded that all four species should be reclassified as Vulnerable. Care is necessary, however, as downgrading a species ranking can impact the attention and funding it receives. The goal of evaluating the status of species is to use the best available information so conservation can be prioritized for the species most in need. More
