AGUILAR, TM.  and  MARINI, MÂ.. Nest and nest-site reuse within and between breeding seasons by three neotropical flycatchers (Tyrannidae). Braz. J. Biol. [online]. 2007, vol.67, n.3, pp.537-540. ISSN 1519-6984.

Nest and or nest site reuse within and between breeding seasons was reported by the Euler's Flycatcher (Lathrotriccus euleri), the Sepia-capped Flycatcher (Leptopogon amaurocephalus) and the Gray-hooded Flycatcher (Mionectes -rufiventris) in forest fragments from southeastern Brazil. Nest and or nest site reuse between some years was frequent within a single breeding season by the Sepia-capped Flycatcher. Nest reuse, however, was not related to nesting success in the previous breeding attempt. Nest turnover rates (movement to a new site between years) were low for L. amaurocephalus, intermediate for L. euleri and high for M. rufiventris.

Keywords : Tyrannidae; nest reuse; nest site reuse; nest reuse; neotropical flycatchers; nest site fidelity.
