Conservation status

No conservation measures have been taken for the family, and none appear needed. According to Breeding Bird Survey data, cedar waxwing populations have increased across North America, and phainopepla populations remain stable. The status of populations of Middle Eastern and Central American species is not well known, but as of 2001, none are listed as Endangered or Threatened.
