|Scientific Name:||Myiagra cervinicauda|
|Species Authority:||Tristram, 1879|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Near Threatened ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Butchart, S. & Symes, A.|
|Facilitator/Compiler(s):||Derhé, M., Dutson, G., Mahood, S., O'Brien, A., Symes, A.|
This species is classified as Near Threatened because it has a very small range and moderately small population. Should the population be found to be declining or the population be smaller than currently thought, the species would warrant uplisting to a higher threat category.
|Range Description:||Myiagra cervinicauda is endemic to Makira (= San Cristobal), including Ugi and Santa Ana in the Solomon Islands. It is not uncommon but is inferred to have a relatively small total population.|

|Population:||The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as still quite common on mountains.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It inhabits lowland forest to 700 m and is very uncommon in degraded habitats (Cain and Galbraith 1956, Buckingham et al. 1994, G. Dutson pers. obs. 1998, Hornbuckle 1999, Dutson 2011).|
|Major Threat(s):||Much of the lowlands on Makira have been logged or are under logging concessions.|
Conservation Actions Underway
None is known. Conservation Actions Proposed
Conduct research to determine population size and trends. Regularly monitor the populations at certain key sites. Further research its tolerance of degraded forest across an altitudinal gradient. Protect significant areas of remaining primary forest on Makira.
