Hi Chris,
With regard to with an attendant wattle bird (is this strange?). I would say no. It seems to happen all the time that wattlebirds will chase or just perch nearby to koels. A chase usually happens only when the koels fly. The wattlebirds appear to know that they are in some way bad news but are not big enough to attack them.
