The case of the missing and reappearing bird nest

Last week (21 April), Ria noticed that the sunbird's nest outside the female toilet at Pasir Ris Park carpark C was gone/removed/destroyed (?). We were rather sad about it and we didn't took photos of it that day.

Today, we noticed the nest back at the same spot. Weird....

It was puzzling for us as we saw the nesting nest 3 weeks ago at the exact same location. Last week when we came back, it was gone. This week it appeared again. Some disappearing act!

However on a closer comparison with the photo Ria took 3 weeks ago, it looks like a different set of nest.

By comparing the structure of the two nests, it looks like what we saw today is a different set of sunbird's nest.

Case closed!
