Priorities for Future Research

There has been little research on Yellow-headed Parrot and many gaps remains in our knowledge of its life history: behavior, reproduction, nonvocal sounds, nest predation, and territoriality need to be addressed. In addition, much remains to be done to clarify the taxonomy of species, including Yellow-headed Parrot, within the Amazona ochrocephala complex.
