One of the best example of coevolutionaru adaptations is that of the interactions between avian brood parasites and their hosts. Brood parasites lay their eggs in nests of other specieis and leave the job of caring for their young with the hosts. Hosts of brood parasites tend to suffer high reproductive costs as often they raise few of no young of their own, an effect of being parasitizes. For this reason, many hosts have evolved strategies that reduces the cost of parasitism.
