The natural quantity of Pied flycatcher in deciduous, mixed and coniferous forests and reproductive parameters in deciduous and mixed stands of subtaiga forests at south-east of Western Siberia was studied comparatively. The natural quantity of the species at nesting period is greater in mixed and deciduous forests. Nesting density, clutch size, volume of eggs, success and productivity of reproduction in nests boxes are higher in deciduous forest. The natural quantity of pied flycatchers at nesting period in dark-coniferous and deciduous forests of subtaiga of Western Siberia does not differ from similar indices in Europe part of Russia. In pine and mixed stands of Western Siberia this parameter is higher. The nesting density, clutch size and number of fledglings for a successful breeding attempt in nest boxes in deciduous and mixed forests of Western Siberian are larger than those in European part of the area. Breeding success in Europe and Western Siberia differ slightly. Number of fledglings per breeding attempt in deciduous forests more in Western Siberia, in mixed forests this parameter differs slightly.
