Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species is described as 'fairly common' in at least parts of its range (Stotz et al. 1996), and 'very common' in some areas (Remsen 2003).

Trend justification: This population is suspected to be increasing as ongoing habitat degradation is creating new areas of suitable habitat (del Hoyo et al. 2003).
