The Fourty Spotted Pardalote
This endangered bird species is found only in Tasmania, with Bruny Island having the most colonies. The Forty Spotted Pardalote is a small bird which lives exclusively in stands of white gum, Eucalyptus viminalis. A recovery programme to conserve their habitat is underway on the island. A good place to view the birds is from the side of the road at McCracken’s Gully, Barnes Bay.
