Population justification: The population is estimated to number fewer than 2,500 individuals (del Hoyo et al. 2004), and so is placed in the band 1,000-2,499 individuals. This equates to 667-1,666 mature individuals, rounded here to 600-1,700 mature individuals.
Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in moderate decline owing to on-going habitat destruction.
