Tufted Tit-Tyrant is the most widespread, and perhaps the best known, species of Anairetes, but there still are many gaps in our knowledge about this species. Its nest and eggs are described, but there still is no information on parental care or on the length of incubation and time to fledging; even the timing of breeding is not well known throughout most of the range of the species. There is almost no information on topics such as population density, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, and molts for Tufted Tit-Tyrant. Some authors suggest that the southernmost populations of Tufted Tit-Tyrant are migratory, but if so, then the migrations of this species are not well documented, and merit further study.
