STATUS
Summer visitor and migrant. 

ABUNDANCE
Scarce as breeder and uncommon on passage.

HABITAT
Breeds above all in dehesas and mature Cork-Oak woods and riverside thickets and copses with some old trees (Black Poplars, Eucalyptus), Sweet-Chestnut woods, urban parks and pinewoods, plus any other relatively open woodland with tree holes for their nests. On passage it is more flexible and may even drop into pseudosteppe and farm fields.

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Recorded from April to November. 

DISTRIBUTION
Breeds patchily and in low numbers in all four provinces, more numerous in the western half. Although most breeders are in hills or upland areas there are also known cases of breeding in riparian thickets down in the campiña and even in built-up areas, including some singular nest sites like street lampposts.
