It takes keen instincts to hear opportunity knocking.
You also need a fair amount of courage, an adventurous spirit, and a splash of luck thrown in.
This way, when opportunity shows up unexpectedly, you can capitalize on it without hesitation.
For instance, you may be sitting on your perch, looking cute (as usual), when suddenly a plate full of crunchy, delicious looking objects shows up.
There is only one problem. The featherless being is also right there, and seems (inexplicably) intent on consuming them herself.
Here, you want to quickly and clearly communicate the essential message of “I am so cute” so she will be too busy flashing that rectangular thing at you to notice you are, well, “answering the door,” so to speak.
