Dromococcyx phasianellus and Anthracothorax nigricollis
The same global conservation status (Least Concern) is attributed to the species Pheasant Cuckoo (Dromococcyx phasianellus) and Black-throated Mango (Anthracothorax nigricollis). Although these two species are widely distributed in South America and are considered as non-globally threatened, a more local view reveals a very contrasting situation. While Black-throated Mango is a fairly common species, found easily even in urban areas; Pheasant Cuckoo is considered rare and possibly extirpated locally at various sites throughout its geographic range.
