Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Endangered as recent research has suggested that the population has undergone a very rapid population decline due to collisions with power lines, a trend which is set to continue into the future as successful mitigation measures are yet to be implemented. Research is underway to assess the current population size and identify ways to effectively mitigate collisions with power lines.
