Justification of Red List category
This species's overall range is small and its montane forest habitat is threatened and continues to decline in extent and quality at some locations. A re-assessment of its extent of occurrence using a Minimum Convex Polygon means it does not meet the threshold for Endangered any more, but it does still warrant listing as Vulnerable.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 13,000 km2

Country endemic: no

Land-mass type - continent
