Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species's status is reported to vary from common to rare in different parts of its range (Watling 2001).

Trend justification: This population is estimated to be in decline following range contractions owing to habitat loss and habitat degradation and predation by introduced species (del Hoyo et al. 2006).
