Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as locally common (Clement 1999).

Trend justification: Current evidence suggests that the species’s population may be increasing as the effective area, extent and/or quality of habitat increases, as a result of deforestation, which leads to increases in the area of scrub and Khasi pine Pinus kesiya forest, the growth of which is stimulated by fire (BirdLife International 2001, del Hoyo et al. 2010).
