The garage is more like a double carport with no door on the front, so the pardalote could see its way out easily enough.  It stopped searching from time to time and perched on a rope clothesline in the garage.  Barbara’s comments confirm my belief that it was looking for insects.

Yes this behaviour is curious but the Spotted Pardalote nests in burrows in the ground so most likely they are looking for food or responding to reflections. Tony doesn't say if it is an enclosed or an open garage. Is it possible the bird got into the garage accidentally and was looking for a way out or is that too obvious?
