Nesting density and synchrony by hosts may indirectly serve as a defense mechanism against brood parasites. Here we examine the relationships between spatial and temporal distribution of host nests and the probability of being parasitized. We use as host species the Black-billed Magpie (Pica pica), a species that is parasitized by the Great Spotted Cuckoo (Clamator glandark) in southern Europe.
