Justification of Red List category
This recently-split hawk-owl is known from just a single small island, on which habitat loss and degradation have been extensive, owing primarily to clearance for agriculture. Remaining habitat is severely fragmented and in continuing decline, and the species is therefore classified as Vulnerable.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 12,100 km2

Country endemic: Yes
