Hello Lawrie and All,

Striated Pardalotes are busy in Brisbane's western suburbs at the
moment.  A
pair is tunelling into a hanging, pipe-style plant pot on a friend's
They are the melanocephalus race having no white streaking on the head
or on the
black face and have no yellow on the rump.  Multiple observers at close
range do
not seem to put them off.

Another pair, with a third in attendance, is actively using a burrow
just above
the gully bridge on the Honeyeater walk at The Hut in Fleming Road,
Hill.  I heard a Spotted Pardalote here too.  Striateds are also to be
calling in many other locations in the western and south-western
