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

The Cozumel Vireo is very distinctive. This species spends most of their time skulking in the scrub and is not easy to see well. I didn’t manage photos of the other two endemics – the skulking Cozumel Wren – basically a House Wren who probably took a liking to island living and decided they didn’t feel like traveling back north... well, at least migration suspension seems like the most plausible explanation (or maybe they discovered Tequila?).
