Pardalotes by the pair

The Rise and Shine is ‘Pardalote City’ at present.

Both Spotted and Striated Pardalotes are nest-building with unbounded energy in this fascinatingly eroded landscape.

  1. One of my favourite Australian birds – beautiful pix.

  2. Hi Geoff,
    Always lovely to see your pics mate and at times very frustrating as well. I spent four hours at Rise and Shine on Monday the *th and did not see a single Pardalote! You must be the Pardalote ‘Whisperer’ ??
    Keep sharing mate, love your work. . .
