Priorities for Future Research

Less is known about Greater Yellow-headed Vulture than any other species cathartid vulture. Possible population declines should be monitored, as well as any information about the movements of the species throughout its range. Reproduction and social behavior of Greater Yellow-headed Vulture are essentially unknown and should be investigated.
