Olive-Backed Sunbird

I saw another pair of birds busy building their nest and this round was the Olive-backed sunbird. This is the female sunbird (without the blue patch on their throat)

A male checking the nest.Both male & female check & inspect their nest.
I don't know what this female bird is doing initially. Saw the bird peck on the fern that their nest attached too. After upload to the computer then I know the answer.The female sunbird is maintaining their nest by removing any potential intruder - including ants as seen on the photo above.
