House Sparrow?

I wonder if this tiny bird House Sparrow? It's body is brown with white pattern, and has a yellow tail.

It's a spotted Pardalote fongling. Where did you see it?

I agree with Araminta, fongling. Did you know you can post your requests for indentifications under the Identifications subforum?

Thank you. Araminta. I see them in where I live, Hidden Valley, Victoria. They come to drink water in our bird bath, and I think they do nest in the trees as well. It's difficult to take good photos of them as they are pretty quick and so tiny. Cheers. Fong Ling

Hi fongling, to find their nest also have look closer to the ground.

They are gorgeous birds , I have some in my garden every spring.

The Spotted Pardalote's nest is an enlarged, lined chamber at the end of narrow tunnel, excavated in an earth bank. Sometimes they nest in tree hollows and occasionally in artificial structures. Both parents share nest-building, incubation of the eggs and feeding of the young when they hatch.
