Larneuk—season of nesting birds Nest

Pre-spring: Late July-August

Spotted Pardalote

Pardalotus punctatus

Pardalotidae

One of #Australia’s smallest #birds, the #SpottedPardalote builds its #nest in a long horizontal #tunnel dug into the #soil of #creekbanks, the #embankments of #railway cuttings, #quarries or similar suitable sites, and sometimes they even excavate tunnels in #rabbitburrows, or #pottedplants in #gardens. The nest itself is spherical, made from strips of #bark, and built in a chamber at the end of the tunnel. Pardalotes are usually seen foraging in the crowns of #eucalypttrees, where they pluck invertebrates, especially from the leaves.
