Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species is described as 'fairly common' (Stotz et al. 1996).

Trend justification: The population is inferred to be declining owing to habitat loss per Tracewski et al. (2016), persecution around plantations as it eats fruit, and hunting for food and cagebirds (del Hoyo et al. 2002, A. Bodrati and K. Cockle in litt. 2018).
