This species is listed as Near Threatened because it may have a moderately small population within its small range, and it is undergoing a continuing decline owing to trapping. However, the range is not yet severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. For these reasons, the species is classified as Near Threatened. Further information may indicate it is more threatened.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
- 2012 – Near Threatened (NT)
- 2008 – Near Threatened (NT)
- 2006 – Near Threatened (NT)

|Population:||The population is estimated to number 10,000-19,999 mature individuals based on an assessment of known records, descriptions of abundance and range size. This is consistent with recorded population density estimates for congeners or close relatives with a similar body size, and the fact that only a proportion of the estimated Extent of Occurrence is likely to be occupied. This estimate is equivalent to 15,000-29,999 individuals in total, rounded here to 15,000-30,000 individuals.|
Trend Justification: Although data are very poor, the species may be declining owing to the bird trade.
