Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to have a small population (2,500-10,000 mature individuals), with the largest subpopulation smaller than 1,000 individuals, and is declining as land is converted to agriculture, as well as the regeneration of shrubland, tree planting and grazing leading to a decrease in the amount of suitable grassland for this species. For these reasons, it is evaluated as Near Threatened.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,550,000 km2

Country endemic: No
