Blue-tailed Hummingbird has a large geographic range and so the IUCN Red List conservation status of this species is Least Concern (BirdLife International 2013). This species is included in Appendix II of CITES, however, as is the case with all hummingbirds, regardless of rarity (except for the Endangered Hook-billed Hermit Glaucis dohrnii, which is on Appendix I of CITES). Blue-tailed Hummingbird is not considered threatened under Mexican law.
Effects of human activity on populations
Human activity probably has little short term effect on Blue-tailed Hummingbird; no threats are identified by BirdLife International (2013).
