Priorities for Future Research

Bar-winged Wood-Wren is fairly common to common, but only recently was discovred, and is very local in distribution. Consequently, most aspects of its natural history are very poorly known. The diet is not known in any detail, and the nest and eggs remain undescribed. There also is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, territoriality and population density for Bar-winged Wood-Wren.
