Notes

  • S6207 - Generally secretive though small groups are often heard; counts or breeding data unlikely to provide a direct basis for a population estimate. Overall: large range of occurrence in Oceania and Asia suggests that minimum population size likely to be 25,000 or higher, but not systematically assessed. No major threats readily identified in Australia.
