Striated Pardalote

Its that time again when the birds start to raise their young. These Pardalotes managed to find our dirt heap a couple of years ago that we were going to use to fill a garden bed with, and made it theirs for the breeding season.
In the last couple of days I have heard them calling around the place, the dirt heap is still there so hopefully they will try it out again. We feel the birds may as well use it until we get around to using it for ourselves plus it is another reason why we should leave it where it is. We will move it one day, but just not yet. As you will see they like to sit on a branch and check if everything is clear before going in to the nest, a different story when coming out though.
