Feeling low




We found a Spotted Pardalote sitting on our garden path, panting, eyes closed. Maybe he'd hit the window glass or been attacked by a bigger bird, or maybe he was ill. He didn't object to being picked up and placed in a more sheltered spot under a bush and hopefully will have recovered by morning.

At least it gave me a chance to see this beautiful bird up close - the rump and chest colours are stunning and the spots delightful.

Aren't they ridiculously glamorous!

Is there an update on the poor little thing?

Hi Snail. Sadly it didn't survive.
