Australia Day 2021

Today’s Doodle knows January 26 by honoring Maria Island—a biodiverse protected State Reserve situated off the eastern coast of Tasmania.

The secluded haven is home to a unique collection of mammal, marine, and avian species, including one of Australia’s rarest birds: the endangered forty-spotted pardalote which is portrayed in the Doodle artwork.

Pardalotes are a family, Pardalotidae, of very small, brightly coloured birds inborn to Australia, with short tails, strong legs, and stubby blunt beaks. This family is composed of four species in one genus, Pardalotus, and several subspecies. The name originates from a Greek word meaning “spotted”. The family once contained numerous other species now divided into the family Acanthizidae.
