Conservation status

Birds in the long-tailed tit family are common over much of their range and are not threatened. However, harsh win ters can decimate the population by up to 80%. Himalayan and Chinese mountain species are common to locally common across their range with two exceptions: the sooty tit (Aegithalos fuliginosus) and white-throated tit (Aegithalos niveogularis) are scarce and listed as Near Threatened. Javanese endemic pygmy tits are locally common, but the ever-present threat of deforestation is of concern for this forest species.
