Listed as Least Concern as its extent of occurrence is greater than 20,000 km², recent evidence shows that it has a wider distribution than was previously known, and it has been reported from disturbed habitat and urban areas in some parts of its range suggesting that it is quite tolerant of disturbed habitats. Its populations are not believed to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
