Conservation Status

Sparkling-tailed Hummingbird as a large geographic range; consequently its IUCN Red List status is rated as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). In Mexico, however, this hummingbird is considered a threatened species due its restricted distribution, and by the strong pressures that affect the distribution sites. Sparkling-tailed Hummingbird is included in Appendix II of CITES, as is the case with all hummingbirds, regardless of rarity (except for Hook-billed Hermit Glaucis dohrnii, which is on Appendix I of CITES).

Effects of human activity on populations

No specific threats to Sparkling-tailed Hummingbird are identified (BirdLife International 2013).
