Spotted Pardalote

Spotted Pardalote (Image ID 34283)
CommentThis female pardalote was exhibiting unusual behaviour, continually flying down to the ground to peck at and worry the dead body of another pardalote. This behaviour continued over at least a couple of days. I have a series of photos of this apparently unusual behaviour, and it was a (somewhat macabre) high point of my photographic year to be able to record it.
