The pattern of nestbox occupation by Pied Flycatchers in a montane oakwood in central Spain is documented across a 7-year period. The population has «built» slowly, mainly through recruitment of young born in the area and adult site-tenacity. Areas recently provided with nestboxes are populated mainly by one-year old birds. Scarcity of suitable habitat outside the study area may be promoting high natal and breeding philopatry.
