Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as probably uncommon or perhaps locally common (del Hoyo et al. 2002).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to desertification of its habitat and removal of dead trees which are required for nesting (del Hoyo et al. 2002).
