Justification of Red List category
This recently-split hawk-owl is only known to occur on a single island, where its population is relatively small and is inferred to be undergoing continuing declines as its forest habitat is converted for small-scale agriculture and human settlements. It has therefore been classified as Near Threatened, pending better data on the exact population size.

Population size: 10000-19999

Population trend: Decreasing

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

Country endemic: Yes
