The spotted pardalote is a small Australian birds at 8 to 10 centimetres in length(3.1 to 3.9 in), The wings, tail and head of the male are black and covered with small, distinct white spots. Males have a pale eyebrow, a yellow throat and a red rump.
I heard a bird call this morning that I was not familiar with in my backyard, and was thrilled to find it was this male spotted Pardalote. I have never seen one before other than in photos. Didn't get a very good pic unfortunately, but decided to share it anyway.
