Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but this species is described as 'fairly common' (Stotz et al. [1996]).

Trend justification: Deforestation rates suggest that this species could potentially be undergoing a slow decline (Tracewski et al. 2016), but given that the rate of forest loss is so slow (c.2.4% over 3 generations [c.12.5 years]) the species is only very tentatively assessed as declining.
