Journal of Avian Biology, ISSN 0908-8857, 11/2019, Volume 50, Issue 11, p. n/a
Obligate avian brood parasites lay stronger eggs than their hosts or non‐parasitic relatives because they are rounder and have a thicker eggshell....

I suggest that the cuckoo's parasitic adaptations are of two kinds: ‘trickery’, which is how adult cuckoos and cuckoo eggs and chicks evade host defences, and...

Journal of Avian Biology, ISSN 0908-8857, 05/2019, Volume 50, Issue 5, p. n/a
In many bird species, parents usually feed the first nestling that starts to beg before its nest‐mates. The pressure to avoid missed feeds could trigger...

BIOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY, ISSN 0024-4066, 11/2017, Volume 122, Issue 3, pp. 675 - 680
Digestive efficiency is one of the main factors affecting nestling growth and survival. Bird species vary in their ability to assimilate different nutrients,...

Journal of Avian Biology, ISSN 0908-8857, 11/2015, Volume 46, Issue 6, pp. 608 - 615
Brood parasites rely entirely on the parental care of host species to raise the parasitic nestlings until independence. The reproductive success of avian brood...

Avian brood parasites leave parental care of their offspring to unrelated foster parents; therefore, their fitness will closely relate to their efficiency in...
