Justification of Red List category
This recently-split hawk-owl is known from just a single small island, on which habitat loss and degradation have been extensive, owing to a variety of threats including clearance for agriculture and livestock grazing. The single subpopulation is likely to be very small and in continuing decline, and it is therefore listed as Endangered.

Population size: 250-999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 6,600 km2

Country endemic: Yes
