Justification of Red List category
This species has been downlisted to Least Concern because published evidence indicates that it has a large range and probably has a moderately large population. Although it will be affected by on-going habitat loss and degradation, it shows tolerance of modified habitats and consequently it is only thought to be in slow to moderate decline. However, the species may qualify for uplisting in the future if evidence suggests that the rate of decline is more severe than this.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 137,000 km2

Country endemic: yes
