Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened ver 3.1
Year Published: 2012
Date Assessed: 2012-05-01
Assessor(s): BirdLife International
Reviewer(s): Symes, A. & Butchart, S.
Facilitator/Compiler(s): Benstead, P., Bird, J., Khwaja, N.
This species occupies a moderately small range, within which forest habitat has been cleared. It is not considered more threatened because it appears to be tolerant of secondary growth, and is therefore listed as Near Threatened.

Previously published Red List assessments:
2008 Near Threatened (NT)
2004 Near Threatened (NT)
2000 Lower Risk/near threatened (LR/nt)
1996 Vulnerable (VU)
1994 Vulnerable (VU)
1988 Near Threatened (NT)

Continuing decline in subpopulations: Unknown
Extreme fluctuations in subpopulations: No All individuals in one subpopulation: No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It inhabits lowland and montane forest at 500-1,500 m, having been described as a rare bird of the higher mountain regions. It was found to be moderately common in logged and primary forest inland at Fogi.

Systems: Terrestrial
Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat: Yes
Generation Length (years): 3.8

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Large parts of Buru's coastal lowlands have been disturbed and selectively logged, and others are targeted for conversion.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Conservation Actions Underway
None are known.

Conservation Actions Proposed
Study the species habitat preferences and determine its reliance on forest habitats. Generate appropriate population estimates based upon the findings and reassess its status accordingly. If necessary devise appropriate conservation responses. Effectively protect significant areas of suitable forest at key sites, in both strictly protected areas and community-led multiple use areas.
