Abstract

•In co-parasitism two or more females lay eggs parasitically in the same nest.•We studied factors associated with co-parasitism in hole-nesting common goldeneyes.•Co-parasites were more closely related than parasites that laid alone.•Co-parasites laid in safer nest sites than parasites that laid alone.•Interaction between related parasites is likely to be important in co-parasitism.
