Oasis Hummingbird is very widespread and the population is believed to be stable; consequently the IUCN Red List conservation status of this species is evaluated as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2014). Oasis Hummingbird is included in Appendix II of CITES, however, as is the case with all hummingbirds, regardless of rarity (except for Hook-billed Hermit Glaucis dohrnii, which is Endangered and is on Appendix I of CITES).
The relative abundance of Oasis Hummingbird in Peru is assessed as uncommon (Schulenberg et al. 2010).
Effects of human activity on populations
Oasis Hummingbird occupies areas on the coast and in the Andes that have been settled by humans for thousands of years, and at least in the short term seems to be little affected by human activities.
