The Spotted Pardalote (Pardalotus punctatus) is one  of Australia’s smallest birds. It builds its nest in a long horizontal tunnel dug into the soil of creek banks,or similar suitable sites,  even in rabbit burrows, or potted plants in gardens. The nest itself is spherical, made from strips of bark, and built in a chamber at the end of the tunnel. Pardalotes are usually seen foraging for invertebrates in the crowns of eucalypt trees.
