This forest-associated species occurs in the Sundaic lowlands where deforestation has been widespread in the recent past. It is consequently considered Near Threatened, because it is assumed to have experienced moderately rapid declines. It is not considered more threatened because it can use human-modified habitats.

|Population:||The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as very common and widespread in southern and north-east Borneo (S. Myers in litt. 2016), locally common in Sumatra and Peninsular Malaysia and common in Brunei, the Andaman islands, the Nicobar islands and in Singapore (del Hoyo et al. 1997, D. L. Yong in litt. 2016).|
Trend Justification: Forest destruction in the Sundaic lowlands of Indonesia, and in Thailand and Malaysia has been extensive (Kalimantan lost nearly 25% of its evergreen forest during 1985-1997, and Sumatra lost almost 30% of its 1985 cover), but the species remains numerous in a number of areas due to its capacity to forage away from forested areas and nest communally. Hence, declines are estimated to have been in the order of 20-30% in the past ten years.
