  • Spotted Pardalote

  • Pardalotus punctatus
  • The Spotted Pardalote is a tiny bird that is most often high in a eucalypt canopy, so it is more often detected by its characteristic call. The wings, tail and head of the male are black and covered with small, distinct white spots. Males have a pale eyebrow, a yellow throat and an orange-red rump. Females are similar but have less-distinct markings. Short black bill.
