Population justification: The global population size has not been formerly quantified, but the species is described as generally uncommon, although locally common (del Hoyo et al. 2007). The number of mature individuals is preliminarily estimated at fewer than 20,000.
Trend justification: Data on population trends are lacking, but high rates of forest clearance and degradation are occurring throughout much of the species's range (J. Pilgrim in litt. 2011), the effects of which are perhaps partially buffered by the species's occurrence in montane forest in some areas and its apparently tolerance of some habitat modification (del Hoyo et al. 2007). On the basis of this information, a moderately rapid population decline is suspected.
