Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as 'uncommon to fairly common' (Schulenberg et al. 2007).

Trend justification: The population trend has not been estimated directly. The only threat known to the species is forest loss; however, deforestation over the past ten years has been negligible within the range (<1%; Global Forest Watch 2020). There is currently no evidence that the species is undergoing a decline (Schulenberg and Johnson 2020). The species is tentatively assessed as stable.
