Population justification: The global population is estimated as numbering as many as 400,000 individuals (del Hoyo et al. 2007).

Trend justification: This population is in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and degradation and introduced plants and predatory mammals (del Hoyo et al. 2007).
