Rose-throated Becards have bred in very small numbers in the Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) of Texas from the 1940s to 1970s (Oberholser 1974; Gehlbach 1987).
At no time during the summer did the becards give alarm calls around nests, which would indicate nestlings or fledglings (Davis 1945).

The current status of two tropical species, Rose-throated Becard (Pachyramphus aglaiae) and Clay-colored Robin (Turdus grayi), is poorly known in Texas.
Nesting Red-billed Pigeons, Rose-throated Becards (Pachyramphus aglaiae) and Altamira Orioles (Icterus gularis) were among a diverse subtropical breeding bird community in the 1970s.
Rose-throated Becard was not detected during 1994-1996.
The state-threatened Rose-throated Becard probably no longer nests in Texas, although it still occurs rarely during the non-breeding season (Texas Ornithological Society 1995).
