Population justification: A survey in 1998-1999 resulted in a population estimate of 10,700-46,200 individuals, rounded to 10,000-46,000 individuals here, roughly equivalent to 6,700-31,000 mature individuals (Riley 2002).
Trend justification: There are few data on recent trends, but there is no evidence for a continuing decline and given its apparent tolerance of secondary habitats declines may have been negligible.
