Hi all,

Keith Brandwood reported the arrival of the Yellow-tipped ssp. (striatus)
of the Striated Pardalote in the Sydney area last weekend. Where I live in
the Blue Mountains I see large numbers of both Spotted and Striated
Pardalotes migrating over at this time of year, but because they are on the
move I rarely get close enough to determine the subspecies of the Striated.
These birds would most likely be ornatus and/or striatus. Does anyone know
if there is any difference in the calls of the various subspecies?

Incidentally, this year I heard the first Striated travelling through on
22nd February. Yesterday morning, during a fairly typical 10 minute period,
I counted 26 pardalotes flying north over my house, in amongst the hundreds
of Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters.
