Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be widespread and common (del Hoyo et al. 1997).

Trend justification: Although the species remains common to abundant throughout much of its range, it is nevertheless suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and fragmentation (del Hoyo et al. 2007).
