Not much is known about the behavior, breeding, or migration patterns of the Sinaloa Martin. There also is nothing known about the population trends of this species, although the available evidence sugggests that it is rare and that the population has declined significantly in recent decades. It is important to survey the breeding range to assess population size and density, and to locate the nonbreeding area (Tobias et al. 2006, BirdLife International 2009, Lethaby and King 2010).

Almost all other aspects of the natural history of the Sinaloa Martin also are undocumented, including the voice, the reproductive biology, and the diet.
