Forty-spotted Pardalote (Pardalotus quadragintus) - Wiki
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Forty-spotted Pardalote (Pardalotus quadragintus) is by far the rarest pardalote, now being confined to the south-east corner of Tasmania. About 9 to 10cm long, it lacks the dark, white-spotted crown of the Spotted Pardalote, being largely light olive green above and grey underneath, but with similar striking black wings with white spots???rather more than 40.
It forages more slowly than the Spotted Pardalote, almost exclusively in the foliage of the manna gum, and usually nests in tree-hollows rather than tunnels. It is classified as endangered. Its stronghold is Maria Island.
