Description: Communal breeding occurs when more than two birds of the same species provide care in rearing the young from one nest.
Announcement: ooperative" or "communal" breeding occurs when more than two birds of the same species provide care in rearing the young from one nest. About 3 percent (approximately 300 species) of bird species worldwide are cooperative breeders. There are two types of cooperative arrangements: those in which mature nonbreeders ("helpers-at-the-nest" or "auxiliaries") help protect and rear the young, but are not parents of any of them, and those where there is some degree of shared parentage of offspring. Cooperative breeders may exhibit shared maternity, shared paternity, or both.
