This is from a recent Victorian Birdline report by Alf Forbes in Boronia:

"This is a rather sad report. Last Friday, after 28 years on my semi bush block 
in Boronia, the first ever colony of Noisy Miners invaded my property. In the 
past they have been a rare itinerant but not now. As of today, a pair of 
nesting Blue Wrens have abandoned their nest and left the fledglings. All 
Striated and Brown Thornbills, Spotted Pardalotes, Grey Fantails, Yellow Faced 
Honeyeaters, Eastern Spinebills, Silvereyes and even the Red Wattlebirds are 
gone. In 3 days these daily sightings are no more. They are far worse than 
Indian Mynas. Love to know how to get rid of them."

Are Noisy Miner invasions usually this abrupt?
