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.
