Justification of Red List category
Human-induced deforestation, introduced predators and severe habitat loss from volcanic eruptions on Montserrat in 1995-1997 produced rapid population declines, qualifying the species as Vulnerable. The population on Montserrat has increased markedly since 1997 and recent monitoring indicates that the species is both common and stable, but the population status on other islands may be more precarious and is poorly known. If improved knowledge confirms that the species is not declining on other islands, it may warrant downlisting.

Population trend: Unknown

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 14,800 km2

Country endemic: No
