Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as uncommon to very rare (del Hoyo et al. 2005).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be currently stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats. Projections in west African protected areas suggest this species may be affected by climate change in the future (Baker and Willis 2014), but the possible degree of decline over the entire population has not been quantified.
