Justification of Red List category
This species is known from few locations within a relatively small range, where its apparently required habitat is subject to continuing degradation. This, along with hunting pressure, is presumably causing some population declines. The population size is considered to be very small, and fragmented into multiple subpopulations. Therefore, the species is listed as Vulnerable.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 74,200 km2

Country endemic: no

Land-mass type - continent
