Description Fieldwork from August to November in Florestal/Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil.

In this project, you will study the nest parasitism behaviour of the Shiny cowbird. We want to better understand how the environmental aspects of the nest site of its host species influence the nest parasitism of the Shiny cowbird.

In this project, you will conduct a series of observations in the field of the Shiny cowbird and its hosts.
