A little upset

What does it take to upset a Striated Thornbill?

Striated Thornbill, Fence Track Muckleford State Forest, 12th September 2016

The sudden appearance of a Cuckoo … in this case a Shining Bronze-cuckoo. This migrant brood parasite lays its eggs in the nests of small bush birds – it has a particular liking for thornbills.
