Nest and nest-site reuse within and between breedingseasons by three neotropical flycatchers (Tyrannidae)

Sepia-capped Flycatcher (Leptopogon amaurocephalus) Science Article 1


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 successin 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.
