Although Andean Tinamou is common, its habits remain poorly known. There is very little information about its diet, and its reproductive biology also is largely unknown, apart from the descriptions of a few nests from Argentina. There is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality and population density, and sexual behavior. Ecological studies are also needed, because there is almost no evidence of threats for this species.
