Priorities for Future Research

There are many important aspects of the natural history of the Black-faced Solitaire that need to be studied. Considering vocalizations, more research and data should be done to study the possibility of geographic variations and also daily vocal patterns. There is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, territoriality and population density, sexual behavior, and responses to predators. There also is very little information regarding the diet and the reproductive biology of the Black-faced Solitaire.
