Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as fairly common across the Sahel, very common across central Sudan and common in central Yemen (del Hoyo et al. 2005).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats.
