Population justification: Partners in Flight estimate the total population to number 50,000-500,000 mature individuals (Partners in Flight 2019, see also Panjabi et al. 2019).

Trend justification: The species is undergoing a moderate decline (Partners in Flight 2019). Forest loss is currently proceeding at a rate of 5% over three generations (c.16 years) (Tracewski et al. 2016), and the species is thus thought to decline by <10% over three generations.
