Population justification: Partners in Flight estimated the population to number <50,000 individuals (A. Panjabi in litt. 2008), which is placed in the band 20,000-49,999 individuals here.

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline locally owing to ongoing habitat fragmentation and loss and heavy over-grazing (del Hoyo et al. 2002).
