Description: Until the southwestern willow flycatcher was proposed for listing as an endangered species in 1993, it was subject to relatively little scientific scrutiny, in part because it is drab, prone to inhabiting dense, wet thickets, and difficult to identify and observe. Consequently, it remained one of the lesser-known of North American birds. Since that time, it has become clear that significant gaps exist in our understanding of its status, distribution, ecology, and management. Recently, many questions about the subspecies have arisen due to controversy over management actions and resulting litigation. New information that addresses these specific questions is essential to effect recovery of the bird. In this chapter we present, in annotated outline form, what we consider to be important areas for further research. This list of research needs is not intended to be exhaustive, and has not been prioritized. Refer to the southwestern willow flycatcher Recovery Plan for research priorities.

Keywords: southwestern willow flycatcher, endangered species, riparian, Southwest, exotic woody plants, rivers, recovery, habitat restoration, Neotropical migratory bird, brown-headed cowbird
