Priorities for Future Research

Although Lesser Roadrunner is very widespread and is fairly common, very little is known about the natural history of this species. Particularly useful would be further information on the reproductive biology of this species, as well as additional information on its diet, and any information on topics such as territoriality, life span and survivorship, dispersal, and population regulation.
