Amazing delicate tiny precious. Barely bigger than the spiders I was photographing in the light tent a few weeks ago, this little native bird is just marvelous. Pardalotes can be quite difficult to rehabilitate in the wildlife hospital situation. They don't handle stress very well. This little fellow was one of Kanyana's successes however.

    Puffed up like that makes this little guys wings look really stubby. Almost as if he could be flightless.
