Justification of Red List category
This species has been recently rediscovered in both Venezuela and Colombia, following 40 years without any records. Its range and population are poorly known, but presumed to be very small (Collar et al. 1992). Habitat loss is continuing throughout its range, and has been rapid over the last five years in an area that was probably a stronghold. Consequently its range and population are likely to be declining. The species is therefore classified as Endangered.



Population size: 150-700

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 82,800 km2

Country endemic: No
