Additional observations on the nest and eggs of Stenocercus caducus (Squamata: Tropiduridae) with a report of nest usurpation
The Brown Leaf Lizard Stenocercus caducus (Cope, 1862) (Squamata: Tropiduridae) arguably is the most widely distributed of the more than 60 species of Stenocercus Duméril and Bibron, 1859 (Nogueira

Nest Description of the Garden Emerald (Chlorostilbon assimilis) from Costa Rica
TLDR
The nest and nestlings of the Garden Emerald are described based on a nest found in La Amistad International Park, Costa Rica, which was built on an anthropogenic substrate, and was similar to nests described for other emerald species, but unlike otherEmeralds, the nest contained no lichens, mosses, or ferns.
Comparison of breeding biology aspects of Fluvicola nengeta (Aves: Tyrannidae) between two nesting sites
ABSTRACT Fluvicola nengeta is an insectivorous bird that belongs to the Tyrannidae family, which lives close to bodies of water and can occur in urban areas as well. It makes use of natural and
Nest size variability and interspecific nest reuse in Little Crake
TLDR
The nest size in mid-field ponds localized in northern Poland was slightly smaller than that recorded in fishponds in the Czech Republic, but larger than the records obtained in lakes in Germany and Russia.

The eect of nest usurpation on breeding success of the black-billed magpie Pica pica
The breeding of some birds, such as raptors or owls that do not build their own nest, is often limited by the availability of nests constructed by other bird species. When breeding habitats
Patterns of nest usurpation : When should species converge on nest niches ?
TLDR
Nest-site convergence through nest usurpation may be more likely to occur in moderately open tropical habitats because of the availability of enclosed nests, the limited structural heterogeneity of the vegetation, which limits the possibility of nest-niche partitioning, and the high diversity of potential nest competitors and predators.

TLDR
A comparison of Harris' Sparrows and Gambels Whitecrowned Sparrows in the Northwest Territories, Canada and the Sierra Nevada, California and the effects of snowpack and variation in reproductive ecology of a montane ground-nesting passerine, Junco hyemalis, reveals adaptive limitations of the reproductive rate of birds.

The Ecology of Brood Parasitism in Birds
TLDR
Counterparts of the cuckoos are known among insects, of which several groups are specialized for interactions with social insects, ranging from facultative commensalism to an inquilinism close to the cucksoo nexus.
Molecular Genetic Perspectives on Avian Brood Parasitism1
TLDR
Genetic parentage analyses suggest that brood parasitic birds are less promiscuous than might be expected given their lack of nesting and parental care behavior, and host-specificity in brood parasites, which has important implications for host-parasite coevolution.
Brood parasitism in birds : strangers in the nest
TLDR
Brood parasitism is of interest to biologists for a number of reasons, with the result that being parasitized often has a detrimental effect on the reproductive success of the nesting hosts and may affect their population numbers as well.
