Distribution and habitat preferences

It occupies the northern two-thirds of Australia. It is rare in the eastern part of its range but common in the northwest, where it prefers dry inland woodlands, mulga, and the trees along creek beds. The red-browed pardalote builds its nest underground at the end of a tunnel. (Wikipedia)
