Population justification: Partners in Flight estimate the total population to number 500,000-5,000,000 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), which is likely a result of habitat loss within the range. A remote sensing analysis found that between 2000 and 2012, forest within the range has been lost at a rate of approximately 5% over three generations (11.7 years; Tracewski et al. 2016). Assuming that population declines are proportional to forest loss, the species may be declining by <10% over three generations.
