Justification of Red List category
This species has a small and declining population within a restricted range. Landscape conversion for agriculture is causing rapid declines in the area of suitable habitat, with inevitable impacts on population size. However, recent surveys have found higher densities than previously thought within breeding areas. It currently qualifies as Vulnerable, although future increases in the rate of decline could result in uplisting to Endangered.
Distribution size (breeding/resident):
Land-mass type - continent - Continents are land masses > bigger than Australia (=7,682,300 sq km).
