Andean Cock-of-the-rock Rupicola peruvianus


Priorities for Future Research

Although the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock is quite the attention grabbing bird, there is still much to be studied to compile a full profile of this species. Future research should be focused on locomotion/migration, foraging behavior, predation, self-maintenance, fledging, how leks are formed and populations and demography.
