The avian brood parasitic cuckoo species namely Common hawk cuckoo (Hierococcyx varius) and Jacobin cuckoo (Clamator jacobinus) parasitized the same host species Jungle babbler (Turdoides striata). Breeding season of Jungle babbler started in midFebruary and ended in late June which coincides with the breeding season of the parasitic cuckoos, Common hawk cuckoo (March-May) and Jacobin cuckoo (June-July) respectively. Competition for same host has been found to reduce because these two cuckoo…

TLDR
The nest’s height above ground was an important predictor of brood parasitism in Long-tailed Shrike with an increased risk of brood Parasitism in low nests and all the host species suffered the costs of brood parasites, showing reduced breeding success.
Brood Parasitism in Asian Cuckoos: Different Aspects of Interactions between Cuckoos and their Hosts in Bangladesh
TLDR
It is found that koel eggs were highly non-mimetic to those of common myna and long-tailed shrike, but showed good mimicry to house crow eggs, while cuckoo eggs showed excellent egg mimicry with the eggs of their black drongo hosts, as did common hawk cuckoos and piedcuckoos with their jungle babbler host.
Responses of potential hosts of Asian cuckoos to experimental parasitism
TLDR
Experimental parasitized nests of 10 potential host species breeding in sympatry with four different cuckoo species in an area in Bangladesh using differently coloured model eggs to test host responses, showing considerable variation in egg rejection rates among various species.
Interactions between the Asian koel (Eudynamys scolopacea) and its hosts
TLDR
It is found that koel eggs were highly non-mimetic to those of common myna and long-tailed shrike, but showed good mimicry to house crow eggs, while cuckoo eggs showed excellent egg mimicry with the eggs of their black drongo hosts, as did common hawk cuckoos and piedcuckoos with their jungle babbler host.
Brood parasitism by Common Hawk-Cuckoo (Hierococcyx varius Vahl.)
TLDR
The Indian Hawk-Cuckoo was found to be a brood parasite on Pale-capped Babbler, Turdoides affinis in Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) Campus, Thrissur and the study indicates that the cuckoo may be destroying the eggs or the chicks of the host.
Egg‐morphs and host preference in the common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus): an analysis of cuckoo and host eggs from European museum collections
TLDR
Support is provided for the ‘nest site hypothesis’ which states that each cuckoo female parasitizes a group of host species with similar eggs or nest sites, which indicates that cuckoos also parasitize several species whose nest sites are similar to those of their main host.
Factors influencing host nest use by the brood parasitic Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopacea)
TLDR
Investigation of patterns of nest use among three commonly used host species of the Asian Koel in Bangladesh indicates that brood parasites in general use many similar cues when selecting host nests, and indicate that brood parasite–host systems correspond well with findings from other brood parasite-host systems.
Babbler Nest Parasitism by Indian Hawk Cuckoo
TLDR
Study of nest parasitism behavior of hawk cuckoo on babbler will help in development of conservation strategies for the two species.
