Justification of Red List category
This species is only recorded with regularity from a very few sites, but, despite the rapid habitat destruction taking place within its range, it is thought to be fairly secure owing to its tolerance of hill forest. Logging and hunting pressure are nevertheless suspected to be driving a moderately rapid population decline, thus the species is classified as Near Threatened.



Population size: unknown

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 3,730,000 km2
