I guess it is because they are little and so they can't fight back very well. 
Also they are loud, so they draw attention to themselves. So the honeyeaters 
always know they are there. After all, what fun is living, if you can't be 
nasty to those smaller than you (or that is likely to be what a honeyeater 
thinks, says me being just a little anthropomorphic, but honeyeaters are 
aggressive to everyone). There is some food competition for lerps going on too.
