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

The Tufted Tit-tyrant (Anairetes parulus) is a species of bird in the Tyrannidae family. It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Falkland Islands, and Peru. Its natural habitats are temperate forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, subtropical or tropical high-altitude shrubland, and heavily degraded former forest. This species is listed as Least Concern because of its large range of 2,640,000 square kilometres (1,020,000 sq mi), stable population, and, though not estimated, population believed to be well above 10,000.

Tufted Tit-Tyrant although they were around other insectivores of similar size; Tufted Tit-Tyrant was not observed to associate with other species while foraging. Further behavioral studies need to be conducted, particularly in areas of overlap of Anairetes spp. Predation No information. However, distribution overlaps broadly with that of Peruvian Pygmy-Owl (Glaucidium peruanum), a prolific predator of small birds. More
