Mangrove Hummingbird Amazilia boucardi

Demography and Populations

The species is patchily distributed even within the large mangrove forests in its range. The patchy distribution could reflect the presence of its preferred food, the nectar of Pelliciera rhizophorae. The population is estimated to be between 2,500 and 10,000 individuals and is thought to be decreasing (Birdlife 2008).
