Priorities for Future Research

Buff-collared Nightjar is widely distributed, but many aspects of its natural history are poorly known. There are few reports on its breeding has been reported at only a few localities, and there is no information on the reproductive biology, apart from the descriptions of a few nests and eggs. The diet of this nightjar is unknown in any detail. There also is no information on such topics as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, population regulation, molts, territoriality and population density, sexual behavior, and responses to predators.
