Priorities for Future Research

Black-bellied Hummingbird is not a rare species, but its natural history is very poorly known. Very little is known about its breeding biology. There also is relative little information on its foraging ecology, and about demographic factors such as life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation.
