Justification of Red List category
This species qualifies as Critically Endangered because it has suffered an extremely rapid population reduction owing to extensive loss of its lowland habitats and trapping for the cagebird trade. Now that it is extinct in much of its historic range and some protected populations are increasing the rate of decline may have slowed; however, the bulk of the past declines are believed to have occurred within the past three generations thus its current classification remains warranted.

Population size: 370-770

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 734,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - shelf island
Realm - Indomalayan
