Roraiman Nightjar has a restricted geographic distribution, most of which is difficult to access. Consequently most aspects of its natural history are very poorly known. There is no information on its diet or on its reproductive biology. Very little even is known about the habitat preferences of Roraiman Nightjar. There also are no quantitative data on population density or population trends for this species, or information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality, and sexual behavior.
