Justification of Red List category
Moderate declines have led to local extinctions in parts of the species' range. Available habitat in the moderately small range is declining in extent and quality, and the population is at high risk from introduced nest parasites. The species is therefore assessed as Near Threatened.

Population size: 36000-72000, 52000 mature individuals

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 20,800 km2

Country endemic: yes
