This Striated Pardalote is busy overseeing construction on a new nest site

“In this picture I have captured a Striated Pardalote (Pardalotus striatus),” says Brodie.

“These birds are incredibly small (roughly the same size of a finch) and very twitchy requiring a high shutter speed at times. This particular animal is in the process of building a tunnel in the side of a dirt hill with its 5 companions, of which it will use as a nest for its babies when the weather begins to cool. They are very hard and dedicated workers and even if you are close to the nest they will continue to build and feed their babies.”
