Justification of Red List category
There are some indications that this species has a moderately small population, occupying a small range, which are both in decline owing to forest loss. However, further research is needed into the species's population size and structure, and the impact of potential threats, although its tolerance of human-modified landscapes means that its population is unlikely to be severely fragmented. It is therefore listed as Near Threatened.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 20,500 km2
