Population justification: The global population is estimated to number 50,000-499,999 mature individuals (Partners in Flight 2019). The species is described as 'fairly common' (Stotz et al. 1996).

Trend justification:

The species has undergone a large, significant decline between 1970 and 2014 (Partners in Flight 2019). A remote-sensing study found that forest loss within its range over the past decade was 5% (Tracewski et al. 2016); thus the species may be declining by <10% over a ten year period.
