While my recent attention has been drawn to the arriving Rainbowbirds, other less exuberant tunnel nesters are quietly going about their business. Pardalotes are tiny insectivorous birds, that belong to their own family Pardalotidae. We have two local species, the Spotted and Striated Pardalotes. This morning I watched a pair of Striated Pardalotes bringing food to an active tunnel at the Newstead Cemetery. Most visits involved the delivery of flower-spiders, gleaned from nearby shrubs.
