Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, though national population sizes have been estimated at c.100-100,000 breeding pairs and c.50-10,000 individuals on migration in China, c.10,000-100,000 breeding pairs and c.1,000-10,000 individuals on migration in Taiwan (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction.
