Justification of Red List category
This species has a small population with a largest subpopulation smaller than 1,000 individuals, and is likely to be declining as land is converted to agriculture, as well as the regeneration of shrubland, tree planting and grazing leading to a decrease in the amount of suitable grassland for this species (Leader et al. 2010). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Vulnerable under criterion C2a(i).

Population size: 1000-2499

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,890,000 km2

Country endemic: No
