  5. These are some of my favourite birds here in Australia - but yet to see one in the field! They are exquisite and here we have one captured to perfection. A stunning image. Posted one year ago
    1. Yes they are indeed very beautiful! Apparently I was very lucky as they were otherwise not seen too often in that area. :-) Posted one year ago

The spotted pardalote is one of the smallest of all Australian birds at 8 to 10 cm in length, and one of the most colourful; it is sometimes known as the diamondbird. Although moderately common in all of the reasonably fertile parts of Australia it is seldom seen closely enough to enable identification. A distinctive subspecies, the ''yellow-rumped pardalote'' , is found in drier inland regions of southern Australia, particularly in semi-arid Mallee woodlands.
