The pair of pardalotes that have been checking out (or attacking - that's the female!) their 'rival' in my 1st floor office window daily (many times daily, usually) since February also sometimes spend time under the timber balcony (opens off my office) - I assume that they are looking for little spiders etc to eat, and maybe a nook to nest in (though that would be too close to their 'rival', I suppose) - the wasps nests that are there are very small. There's wisteria screening one side, and they spend time in it, too. I do not spend much time under the balcony, so they could be there more often than I'm aware of.

PS Eastern spinebill sings for such an extraordinarily long time and at such high volume that it must circular breathe ???
