The Striated Pardalote is a small bird, inhabiting woodland forests. On a recent bushwalk, a pair of striated pardalotes chirped and busily flitted in and amongst the foliage, far too quickly for me to capture with my camera. The male has a golden yellow face and a bright red spot on his white striated wing. My sleeveless jacket emulates the flurry of colours the birds created, as I watched them for that brief moment.
