Population justification: The population is estimated to number 550,000 individuals on American Samoa. This probably constitutes 25-49% of the species's range, so a very preliminary estimate of the total population is 1-2.5 million individuals. It is best placed in the corresponding population band.
Trend justification: This population is suspected to be in decline owing to competition with introduced bird species.
