Priorities for Future Research

Given the limited information available about any aspect of Balsas Screech-Owl biology, status or population trends, there are many avenues that would provide valuable information for conservation of the species. This would include information about basic life history, habitat use, demographics, reproduction, behavior, population status and trends, and response of the owls to various human activities. This information will facilitate further comparisons with related taxa in Mexico and Central America as well as inform conservation actions.
