Degradation of foraging habitat is a threat to this species2. In Florida removal of poisonwood Metopium toxiferum, which can cause severe human dermatitis, affects the species as it feeds on the poisonwood's fruit1,3. C. leucocephala is an important game species through much of its range, and although hunting regulations in the Bahamas have been changed, illegal hunting seems to be a threat1. Collision with man-made objects is a major source of mortality in Florida, and pesticide use and human impact may also have detrimental effects1.
