Striated Pardalote - friendly and cute

Whilst staying at the Jasper Gorge on the Buchanan Highway in the NT between Top Springs and the Victoria Highway, I had a couple of wonderful encounters with Striated Pardalotes. They constantly pipe away, and come down very close to inspect you. This isn't always the case with these birds, often you can hear them but they stay high in the treetops, but not the ones in the photos. Hope you enjoy:

  1. In addition to all the DIFFERENT STUFF you get to see, it's not really fair that VICTORIAN BIRDS should also be THAT COOPERATIVE! :) Great shots Rich!
