What is brood parasitism? Explain with the help of an example.

1 Answer

Certain birds lay their eggs in the nests of the other birds for incubation, hatching and rearing of young ones. Example: Cuckoo laying the eggs in the crow’s nest. The eggs of the brood parasite resemble the eggs of the host in its size and colour so that the host bird is unable to identify the egg.
