There is little information on the diet of Blue-tailed Hummingbird. As is the case with other species of Amazilia, it forages for nectar, including at flowering Inga sp. (Stiles and Skutch 1989). Presumably also feeds on small arthropods, as do most if not all species of hummingbirds (see Remsen et al. 1983).
