Justification of Red List category
This species has declined rapidly, and now has a small and fragmented range and population (Collar et al. 1992). The rate of decline is unknown, but it is still trapped for the domestic market and habitat loss continues; the population probably now numbers fewer than 5,000 individuals, and the species therefore qualifies as Vulnerable.



Population size: 1500-7000

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 85,600 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
