Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be widespread and locally common in suitable habitat (del Hoyo et al. 2001).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline locally owing to ongoing habitat destruction (del Hoyo et al. 2001).
