It used to be very hard to see a full male. It was thought that there was an skewed sex ratio, and that females which lacks the long-shafted battles were more common than males, as people searched for the birds along the roadside near Pomacochas. However, when with the help of local guides such as Santos Montenegro, who took birders to small patches of dense secondary growth with lots of flowers it became clear that it was a habitat difference between females and males.
Away from the road males were more common than females!
There was also concern of males being hunted to extract the hearts for human consumption, allegedly good for sexual performance, but it turned out when interviewing local people that this was not specific to Marvelous Spatuletail and luckily not a particularly common practice. Locally, the Marvelous Spatuletail is not that uncommon, but it is stealthy and often hard to see well as it dashes through dense foliage.
Presently, the best place to see one is at Huembo near Pomacochas, but birders also regularly see them at Kentitambo in Leimebamba, close to Kuelap and Gocta waterfalls.
