Conservation status

Because it is limited to mature rainforests, particularly dipterocarp-dominated swamp forests that are subject to deforestation for timber, the Bornean bristlehead is classified as Near Threatened. It seems to be the only species under serious threat. Categorized as Data Deficient, the Tagula butcherbird (Cracticus louisiadensis) is also listed, presumably because it is restricted to one small island off southeastern New Guinea. Even so, it is a member of the black-hooded butcherbird group that is well-adapted to secondary growth and forest disturbance.
