Justification of Red List category
Mainland populations of this species may be decreasing rapidly, based on annual declines, predation and loss of habitat. However, owing to the stability of island populations, and intensive predator control in select mainland populations, the overall decline is likely to be slower, but still rapid, thus warranting Vulnerable status.

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 157,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes
