  1. Since 2006, almost yearly in Ethiopia (and single visits to Eritrea and Djibouti, two visits to Somaliland), I drove a total tens of thousands of km across suitable habitat for this species, albeit in the wrong/shoulder season (September-November) and never saw a single individual. Nor I saw any birds in the right season in suitable habitat in the Sahel of Cameroon or Ghana. This is my top nemesis bird in Africa and I might just have been unlucky and in Ethiopia at the wrong time, but my gut feeling is that it is worse than LC.
