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. On Montserrat, the population has increased markedly since 1997 and recent monitoring indicates that the species is both common and stable. The majority of the global population occurs on Guadeloupe, where the species is declining at most slowly. The smaller populations on Dominica and St Lucia are potentially in rapid decline. Overall, it is assumed that the rate of population decline has slowed down and no longer meets the threshold for listing as threatened. The species has therefore been downlisted to Near Threatened.
