Reasons for the need for protection/inclusion in annex I
Population size in the EU is unlikely to exceed 5,000 pairs. Mture forests supporting Semi-collored Flycatchers are currently threatened by exploitation for the production of timber, changing agricultural practices and related hydrological alterartion, construction of large reservoirs and fires. Furthermore, hunting during migration is an important threat for the species.
