Whenever possible, it is nice to woo the ladybirds with the most authentic and natural-looking nest.

But this isn’t always possible.

Plus, as great as nature can be, it doesn’t always provide for the most posh nesting experience.

Let’s say you happen to be an “indoor nester” and you chance upon a wonderful little box that looks just perfect for nesting.

A single and savvy “indoor nester” happens upon a very promising new nesting site!

Sure, maybe a box like this wouldn’t occur in nature in exactly this form and fashion, already packed full of soft and insulating material for cradling newborn eggs.

But there is no denying it has all the right nurturing elements already in place.

All it really needs is just the merest hint of judicious remodeling – a task any naturally handy manly manbird can easily tackle.

A very handy manly manbird tackles the task of remodeling the promising new nest box.

As a special romantic touch, you can even molt out a few of your own soft feathers for that little extra bit of nurturing comfort a nesting ladybird will crave.

To ensure each egg has the softest, er, landing upon its arrival into this world, it is always a nice touch to include a few of your own downy soft feathers in the nesting material!

Then, while you busy yourself adding the finishing touches to your new nest, it is time to deploy your large featherless nesting assistant out into the great wide world to find your perfect match!
