There is very little information on the behavior of Rufous-webbed Brilliant. This hummingbird primarily forages in forest understory and at forest edge (Schulenberg et al. 2010). There is no information on the species of flowering plants visited by the brilliant, other than an observation of a flowering subcanopy vine that was visited by Rufous-webbed Brilliant (Schulenberg et al. 1984).
There is no information on territorial behavior in Rufous-webbed Brilliant.
Little information. Rufous-webbed Brilliant presumably is polygynous, as are most if not all species of hummingbirds (Schuchmann 1999: 509).
Social and interspecific behavior
Rufous-webbed Brilliant primarily is solitary, as is typical of hummingbirds.
