Diet and Foraging

Diet

Very little information. Golden-breasted Puffleg is primarily nectarivorous, but the food plants visited by this hummingbird have not been identified. Golden-breasted Puffleg also feeds on small arthropods, as do most if not all species of hummingbirds (Remsen et al. 1983).
