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

Trend justification: This species is expected to have become locally extinct in areas of intense deforestation (del Hoyo et al. 2004), thus the overall population is suspected to be in decline.
