Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be common and widespread in some areas and scarce in others (del Hoyo et al. 1994).
Trend justification: The species is declining throughout much of its range owing to habitat loss and degradation caused by timber extraction, overgrazing and agricultural conversion as well as hunting pressure (del Hoyo et al. 1994).
