Because nesting season is so competitive, it is wise to scope out the competition early.
Plus, it never hurts to do a little “pursuing” of your own (even if you don’t need to).
The best place to do all this is to go where the competitors and the ladybirds are – in the “great outdoors.”
Yup, this is a great spot, Mom. Thanks.
Um, Mom…..yes, that’s right. Go sit over there where the ladybirds won’t see you.
Ooooh! I think I see a competitor! He is grey and white too! But his song is crazy complicated – makes him sound desperate. Plus, his beak isn’t curved – ladybirds prefer curved beaks.
I’ll just play it cool and keep my song simple – soon the ladybirds will all be flocking.
More cuteness? Good idea, Mom – I can do that!
Even more? I’m on it!
How’s this? Mom? Mom? MOM….! Yup, I thought that might be too much cuteness.
