How about natural predation by birds of prey. e.g. Red Goshawk, Grey Falcon, Peregrine Falcon, Australian Hobby, Little Eagle, Square-tailed Kite. This could be as high as 8 on your list in terms of numbers. Before you eradicate these threats, please let me see a Red Goshawk first .....

And there is parasitism by cuckoos.

Mangrove destruction is a problem, but hardly rates number 3 by itself. Probably just best left as part of general habitat destruction in number 1.
