And another thing...

Why do other birds chase pardalotes???? In my neighbourhood, in Sydney's 
inner-west, spotted pardalotes are regularly pursued by wattlebirds, 
honeyeaters, miners etc. as if they are a pest. Surely a spotted paradalote 
presents no threat to a bigger honeyeater! Are the birds annoyed by the 
pardalote's call? Is the pardalote seen as a competitor re. available food 
sources? What's happening here????

I'd be interested in people's thoughts.
