Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as common (Feare and Craig 1998), while the population in Taiwan has been estimated at c.100-10,000 introduced breeding pairs (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The population trend is difficult to determine because of uncertainty over the impacts of habitat modification on population sizes.
