Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be scarce in many places (del Hoyo et al. 1994, Fuller et al. 2000).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and unsustainable levels of hunting.
