Justification of Red List category
This unobtrusive, shy species has a very small population inhabiting a very small range, leading to its classification as Vulnerable. However, there are extremely few data on which to base this estimate and it may prove either to be more widespread (and thus warrant downlisting to Near Threatened) or to be threatened by introduced mammals (and thus warrant uplisting to Endangered or even Critically Endangered).

Population size: 250-999

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 650 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
Realm - Oceanic
