Priorities for Future Research

Black-headed Siskin is common, widely distributed, and conspicuous, but its natural history is very poorly known for such a widespread species. Very little is known about its foraging ecology, its breeding biology, and about demographic factors such as life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation.
