    I would strongly advise not to downlist the species from EN to VU. The current suspected estimate is in my opinion too high and still only based on 2002. The species does not show any sign of increase. In fact its close connection with mangroves leads me to suspect that the decline has continued alongside the decline of mangroves in the region (extent and quality) and hence still in a perilous state. In 2019 we only observed 30 + 2 birds at two locations during a week survey in the Menabe NP area. (Zöckler et al 2021).

    Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this discussion. We greatly appreciate the time and effort invested by so many people in commenting. The window for consultation is now closed. We will analyse and interpret the new information and post a preliminary decision on this species’s Red List status on this page in early July.

    Thank you once again,
    BirdLife Red List Team

    Preliminary proposal

    Based on available information, our proposal for the 2021 Red List is to pend the decision on this species and keep the discussion open until 2022, while leaving the current Red List category unchanged in the 2021 update.

    There is now a period for further comments until the final deadline in mid-July, after which the recommended categorisations will be put forward to IUCN.

    Final 2021 Red List categories will be published on the BirdLife and IUCN websites in December 2021, following further checking of information relevant to the assessments by both BirdLife and IUCN.
