Population Status

The total population has not been determined. Such a comprehensive estimate could be challenging due to the species’ very large distribution over the northern half of South America, spanning many countries. Its relative abundance has been assessed as fairly common in eastern Colombia (8), as uncommon to fairly common in Venezuela (2), and as fairly common across most of its range, although very local in the western portion of its distribution (45, 1).
