Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be fairly common everywhere within its range and locally abundant in some areas up to 2,000 m (del Hoyo et al. 1997).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline in Tanzania owing to unsustainable levels of hunting (del Hoyo et al. 1997).
