Population justification: The global population size has been estimated as fewer than 20,000 individuals (Madge and McGowan 2002). It is placed in the band 10,000-19,999 individuals, equating to 6,667-13,333 mature individuals, rounded here to 6,000-15,000 mature individuals.

Trend justification: There are no data on overall population trends, although recent surveys suggest a stable or increasing trend in the Pipar-Santel area of Nepal (Poudyal et al. 2009); however, hunting and habitat degradation are suspected to be causing a slow decline overall.
