During the past couple of days a  pair of Striated Pardalotes have been calling incessantly, like they’re trying to take the title of “brain-fever bird” from the Pallid Cuckoo, as they move back and forth between winter-bare tree and roof of house.

They’ve done this during previous springs, but we’ve never seen any evidence of breeding. Probably due to patrols mounted by Pussum F. Cat, the neighbour’s Panzer-on-paws, that is, not our mad little moggie who lost interest in birds after choking on a mouthful of feather duster.
