Latin America : East Panama, Northwest Colombia. The Dusky-backed Jacamar has a tiny range on the border between Colombia and Panama, where the species seems to be, at most, only locally common
This species prefers somewhat disturbed areas, with clearings, gaps, and forest edges constituting typical habitat.
No data, probably breeds in earthbanks.
These birds chasing winged insects from exposed, high perches, or even from low bushes
This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
