Tag Archives: Samoan Flycatcher
Samoan Flycatcher Myiagra albiventris is listed as Vulnerable under criteria A2c; A3c; A4c on the basis that its population is suspected to be declining at a rate of 30-49% over 10 years owing to habitat degradation caused by severe cyclones in 1990 and 1991 and the spread of non-native tree species, as well as deforestation for agriculture. This threat listing has been questioned in the past (Sherley 2001) and recently it has been expressed that this species may no longer qualify as Vulnerable (G. Dutson in litt. 2009), provoking a review of its status.
