Priorities for Future Research

Cinnamon Hummingbird is common and widely distributed, but its natural history is incompletely known for such a widespread species. Very little is known about its territoriality and population density. More research also could be done on demographic factors such as life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation. Although its nest and eggs are well described, more could be learned regarding brooding and fledging periods, and the seasonality of breeding in Cinnamon Hummingbird.
