Priorities for Future Research

Since the Cocos Cuckoo is one of the least known birds in Costa Rica, studies of its natural history and ecology, as well as its population density, are essential to be able to implement a management plan. Also, modeling habitat associations studies are recommended in combination with bioacoustics. In addition, it is necessary to study non-native species in detail and to know their ecological role on the island, and the effects that they may have on the cuckoo and other native species.
