Priorities for Future Research


The largest priority for the Golden-hooded Tanager is to learn how large or small their population is. Although this species is relatively well-studied, for a tropical tanager, there is no information on demographic factors such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation. It also would be interesting to study the apparent helping behavior at Golden-hooded Tanager nests. As is true of most tropical species, there is almost no information on the sequence of molts in this species, despite the importance (and energetic costs of) molts in bird biology.
