Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened because its population, the vast majority of which forms one sub-population, is suspected to be in decline owing to land-use changes and off-take for various motivations. It also has a very small range; however, this is unlikely to be declining given the species's adaptability, nor is the population severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations.

Population size: 6700

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 750 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Realm - Oceanic
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
