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

Trend justification: Race angustirostris has declined owing to destruction and fragmentation of its habitat in the Bolivian highlands (del Hoyo et al. 2004).
