Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species is described as fairly common to common through much of its wide range (Zimmer and Isler 2003), although the subspecies in Peru and Ecuador are relatively rare, and their habitat is under threat.

Trend justification: The population trend for this species is difficult to determine as anthropogenic processes may be both reducing and increasing local populations (del Hoyo et al. 2003).
