Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Near Threatened because the results of surveys suggest that its range and population are both rather small and are inferred to be in continuing decline. Its population size has not been estimated, but is likely to be small (<10,000 mature individuals). The species's range is in decline owing to continued habitat loss and degradation, which are inferred to be driving a decline in the population; however, it does not qualify for a higher threat category because its population is not considered to be severely fragmented or to occur at 10 locations or less.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 8,700 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
