Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Vulnerable since habitat loss and range contractions suggest its small population is undergoing a decline, which is expected to accelerate to a rapid pace given projected rates of habitat loss. Further evidence suggests the rate of decline may be larger, and so this species may warrant uplisting in the future.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 92,700 km2

Country endemic: No

Land-mass type - continent
