Insects beware

Pardalotes are busy feeding young at present in the Rise and Shine.

This Striated Pardalote appears to have gleaned a small larva from the nearby eucalypt foliage and is about to descend into the nesting tunnel. I didn’t capture any images of Spotted Pardalotes, but there are a number of active nests nearby.

  1. Beautiful clear photos once again. Do we know if this is the female or male. Does the
    Male help feed the young??? Hope so. Cheers. Sue woodend north
