Priorities for Future Research

The Cayenne Jay is a large and at times conspicuous bird, but most aspects of its natural history remain poorly known. Research on virtually every aspect of the life history would be useful; we have only the most basic information on its diet and breeding behavior, for example, and there is no information on territoriality and on population trends.
