Mosaic plot showing that both female (n = 14) and male (n = 30) common cuckoos exhibited intensive responses during the 2 minutes when their host, the great reed warbler, engaged in nest defense activities, compared to the 2 minutes prior to the reed warblers alarming. Both female and male cuckoo responses were scored on the following scale: 0 – no response; 1 – typical female or male call within 100 m; 2 – flying towards the alarming great reed warblers; 3 – flying towards the alarming great reed warblers and vocalizing.
