About the event

Colin Ryall's talk will consider the varied and surprising world of brood parasitism among birds. Of the 130 members of the cuckoo family, about 40% have evolved to be brood parasites, with a wide range of hosts and various parasitic strategies. We will also consider the more than 40 species of brood parasitic birds which are not cuckoos.
