Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Least Concern. It is suspected to have suffered a population decline owing to a reduction in suitable habitat (Collar et al. 1992). However, as recent information suggests that it may in fact tolerate or even favour degraded areas, it is conceivable that the population decline has been halted or possibly reversed.

Population trend: stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,300,000 km2
