Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be generally uncommon and local (del Hoyo et al. 1997).
Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and unsustainable levels of exploitation; its habit of congregating at fruiting banyan trees renders it vulnerable to hunting (del Hoyo et al. 1997).
