NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: Occurs throughout the Caribbean/Bahama region; probably continuing to decline overall as a result of habitat loss/fragmentation and harvesting, although populations appear to be stable or increasing in some areas; most of range lies within rapidly developing countries that do not protect habitat or adequately manage for this species; dependence on two distinct habitat types for nesting and foraging, as well as daily and seasonal movement patterns, increases difficulty of providing adequate protection.
Other Considerations: Despite the lack of data on population trends, the increasing rarity of this species has afforded it endangered or threatened status with several state and national agencies.
