Threats to hummingbird populations and conservation efforts.

Habitat Loss and Degradation: Habitat loss due to urbanization, agricultural expansion, and deforestation poses a significant threat to hummingbird populations.

Climate Change: Climate change is altering the distribution and abundance of flowering plants, potentially disrupting the availability of nectar resources for hummingbirds

Pesticide Use: Pesticides, particularly insecticides and herbicides, can have detrimental effects on hummingbirds by contaminating their food sources and causing direct toxicity.

Competition with Invasive Species: Invasive plant species can outcompete native flowering plants favored by hummingbirds, reducing the availability of suitable foraging habitat

Collision with Structures: Collisions with human-made structures, such as buildings, communication towers, and windows, pose a significant threat to hummingbirds

Illegal Wildlife Trade: In some regions, hummingbirds are targeted for illegal capture and trade due to their colorful plumage and perceived value as pets or decorative items

Light Pollution: Artificial light sources, such as streetlights and illuminated buildings, can disorient migrating hummingbirds and interfere with their navigation.
