Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as generally fairly scarce, although common on Tanahjampea, Timor, Tanimbar and Wetar islands (Gibbs et al. 2001, Trainor et al. 2009).
Trend justification: There are no data on population trends, but hunting and habitat degradation are suspected to be driving a moderate decline.
