The Spotted Pardalote is covered in small distinct white spots, which help to camouflage the tiny bird, whilst feeding amongst lerp covered gum leaves. The males are particularly colourful, with bright golden throats and rust-red rumps. On a bushwalk, we rested on the side of the track, when a little spotted pardalote became anxious and flew in and amongst the group of walkers. We realized we may have been too close to a nest, and quickly moved away.
