Day 124: Looking for Ladybirds

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.”

Yes, this is a great spot, Mom. Thanks.
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 like me. But his song is crazy - I can't imagine a ladybird going for all that.
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.
You've got to play it more cool to catch a ladybird's eye.
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!
More cuteness? Good idea, Mom – I can do that!
Even more? I'm on it!
Even more? I’m on it!
How's this? Mom? Mom? MOM....passing out from cuteness isn't going to help either of us here!
How’s this? Mom? Mom? MOM….! Yup, I thought that might be too much cuteness.
