Population justification: The population is estimated to number 1,000-2,499 individuals, based on a detailed analysis of recent records by BirdLife International (2001). This equates to 667-1,666 mature individuals, rounded here to 600-1,700 mature individuals.
Trend justification: The population is suspected to have experienced a rapid decline over the last ten years, based on questionnaire responses from local people (see BirdLife International 2001).
