I have noted the Tasmanian yellow-tipped form as a winter visitor in the ACT two or three times over the past decade, including once at Campbell Park. I fancy that they are slightly larger, slightly yellower and with a slightly different jizz. The ones I have seen have been solitary.

While checking today's haul of images I noticed that the only Striated Pardalote had a yellow wing spot. Checking in Simpson and Day, I take this to be Pardalotus striatus striatus which is a winter visitor these parts from Tasmania. Going through some old images of a breeding Striated Pardalote in the ANBG, I noted that it had an orange wing spot. But the orange spotted pardalote might possibly belong to several subspecies...

Happy to stand corrected should this be jumping to the wrong conclusions.
