Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified. The species is described as rare and uncommon in Paraguay, but locally common in Brazil (Collar and Boesman 2020).

Trend justification: This species is suspected to undergo a decline owing to extensive habitat loss and degradation within its range (where it now survives in a fragmented landscape) and the impacts of trapping (Collar and Boesman 2020). Over three generations (10.9 years), 13% of tree cover is lost within the range (Global Forest Watch 2021, using Hansen et al. [2013] data and methods disclosed therein). As the species occupies woodland, scrub and savanna, tree cover loss alone is unlikely to drive a substantial population decline, and trapping pressure is described as 'minimal' (Collar and Boesman 2020). Therefore, population declines are thought to be slow, not exceeding 20% over three generations.
