Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species was described as 'fairly common', prior to being split (Stotz et al. (1996).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to forest clearance for small-scale agriculture, charcoal production, pine and coffee plantations as well as over-use of pesticides and hurricane damage (del Hoyo et al. 2004).
