Status Summary
Pied Flycatchers are common birds of western, upland deciduous woods, a habitat that is not covered well by BTO censuses. The BBS suggests that abundance has been stable through the late 1990s and the 1998-1991 breeding atlas revealed a small expansion in range (Gibbons et al. 1993).
