G'day all

Just outside my office window is a climber which was growing too high.  The
gardener here chopped it back to just below window level - revealing a New
Holland Honeyeater's nest with three eggs.  I don't know what happened to the
eggs but for the last week the birds have been busy dismantling the nest and
rebuilding it in a nearby shrub.  How common is it for birds to reuse nest
