Dr Bård Stokke talk on YouTube

Dr Bård G. Stokke gave a talk on Host use by the Common Cuckoo on 21 May 2018.

We have posted a video at the BOC YouTube channel of a talk presented by Dr Bård G. Stokke at a regular BOC meeting on 21 May 2018. The title of the talk was Host use by Common Cuckoo. A generalist brood parasite at the species level, Common Cuckoo utilises more than 100 host species in Europe alone. Individual females are generally host specific and often mimick the eggs of a particular host species. See the 2018 past meetings page for a summary of the talk.

Dr Bard Stokke’s talk opened with a brief introduction to the Common Cuckoo and its brood parasitic lifestyle.

Dr Bard Stokke described research and results stemming from a thorough search for cuckoo parasitism events throughout Europe, conducted over eight years.
