Spotted Pardalotes nest building


As I was walking through Cranbourne Botanical Gardens yesterday a pair of Spotted Pardalotes perched less than 3 metres from me. I waited patiently and they returned to digging out their nesting site just a short distance from where they nested last year.  I'll keep an eye on them over the coming weeks and hopefully there might be some sunshine so I can get some better photos.

    Enjoy your WE and happy birding!
