Population justification: The species is fairly common (Stotz et al. 1996, Collar et al. 2020). Based on density estimates of 3-5 pairs/km2 (Collar et al. 2020) and tentatively assuming that only 10% of the range is occupied by the species, the global population may number 300,000-500,000 mature individuals. To account for uncertainty in the estimate, the population is here placed in the band 100,000-499,999 mature individuals.

Trend justification: The population trend has not been estimated directly. Forest loss within the range has been small over the last ten years (3%; Global Forest Watch 2020). The species is not thought to be threatened by trade (Collar et al. 2020). Therefore, in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats, the species is tentatively assessed as stable.
