The Black-crowned Palm-Tanager is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Black-crowned Palm-tanager (Phaenicophilus palmarum) is a species of bird in the Thraupidae family. It is found in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and heavily degraded former forest.

The Black-crowned Palm-Tanager can be distinguished by its entirely black crown and more washed-out gray underparts that blend into an entirely white throat area but do not contrast sharply with it (Latta et al. 2006, Raffaele et al. 1998). Note that, in contrast, the Gray-crowned Palm-Tanager's throat area is distinctly gray with a sharp transition to white around the chin: this is perhaps the most important distinguishing characteristic.
