Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as uncommon to rare (del Hoyo et al. 1999).

Trend justification: A slow to moderate population decline is suspected to be occurring overall, as declines are taking place in parts of the species's range owing to habitat loss and degradation.
