Priorities for Future Research

Parker et al. (1996) list the research priority for Yellow-crested Tanager as "low" compared to other Neotropical birds. This is most likely due to the bird being fairly common where it is located. There is a paucity of information on basic life history traits. For example, there is no information on nesting, reproduction, or juvenile dispersal in this species, and very little information on diet.
