Chestnut-bellied Flowerpiercer Diglossa gloriosissima


Priorities for Future Research

Parker et al. (1996) list the research priority for the Chestnut-bellied Flowerpiercer as "medium" compared to other Neotropical birds. This is likely because it is an uncommon species and no further information was known at the time. However, the results of recent studies are alarming, as population size continues to decrease as their habitat loss increases (BirdLife International 2016).
