What Bird Is That??

What Bird is That?

Hi Bill,
We recently built on Diamantina Drive in Parklands estate and really like the development you have created out here.
I understand you are quite good with identifying birds. We recently had this bird nesting in one of our dirt piles down the back and have no idea what it is. It is only small. Do you know what bird it that? The birdlife out here is amazing.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Jason,
Striated Pardalote ….they make a ‘witter witter’ call and are more often heard than seen…..nesting in banks of creeks but also sand piles etc…..a gorgeous tiny native bird.
Thanks for caring!
Can we put your little posting up on the web site?...I’ve copied Molly in who updates news around the estate.
Cheers and have a great week,
Bill

Hi Bill,
Many thanks for letting us know. We had never seen a bird like it before and thought you would know.
We have no problem at all with you sharing it on the Facebook page.
Based on your advice, we are planting all natives and have added more plants to the 10m wildlife corridor at the back, to try and attract even more birds. We really like what you have created out here and appreciate the new playground too.
Many thanks.
Jason and Patricia
