Day 85: The Nesting Off-Season

When you are the manliest of manbirds, even when nesting is in the “off season,” you know you must still keep your nesting skills honed and sharp.

One great way to practice each day is with the “green string toss.”

The green string simulates real, live nesting material – the kind ladybirds will expect you to provide for your nest life together.

Using the green string, you can use the off-season to practice “plumping,” “tidying,” “rearranging,” and other nesting activities all ladybirds look for in their manbird.

Well, well. What have we here? A green string? Perfect!

I will whirl it and twirl it, plump it and tidy it, arrange and rearrange it...

That’s right, Mom, this one is totally unsuitable for practice. Can you escort him off the premises – no reference – and bring in his replacement?
