The Orange-eyed Flycatcher is a recently described and very poorly known species. Almost all aspects of its natural history are unknown, including details of the diet and foraging behavior, and most aspects of its reproductive biology. Perhaps the highest priority research needs, however, are to document its population size and density, and the extent of its geographic range, which no doubt is larger than currently is known. There also is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, and territoriality.
