Let’s face it. Facial hair is in.

It is a clear sign of how masculine and manly you are when you can sprout stuff on your face.

Not only do the ladies take this as an obvious sign of your, um, nesting capabilities, but it looks good, too.

If you can be a power nester and look very fashion-forward at the same time, bonus!

Although many males of the species can grow facial hair readily enough, where they fall short is when they try for a manlier-looking beak.

For this, it takes a real pro.

You have to be a bona fide, dyed-in-the-feathers, “alpha” male to do it.

And when you can do it, you can expect the ladybirds to come flocking!

An “alpha” manly manbird displays exciting early growth on both his upper and lower beak.
Just a little more now – you don’t want to grow it too fast or all the single ladybirds will faint!
You also want to make sure to show the ladybirds that your exceptionally masculine and manly good looks won’t get in the way of your fierce and ferocious “nest defense” skills.
Beak-building in progress!
When you look very manly and masculine and you know it…. (subtitled: “if you like it then you better put a ring on it”, thanks Bey <3)
