|I've just run Maestro to refresh my memory (it has been quite a while since I last played so the details are getting a bit hazy).|
If you enter the bird cave by using the portal in the hall that has the green crystal columns then the key is still present in its underwater treasure chest.
Using the way you describe materialises you next to the sunken ship in the main pool. The treasure chest is not in that pool. There is another little pool close to the avatar pen (where you collect the medal as the reward at the end) between the pen itself and the entrance to the tunnel where the "electronic pterodactyl" appears. Dive into it and you can't fail to find the treasure chest.
Olrac is right that sometimes objects are present and sometimes not, depending how you reach the world in then first place. This has certainly caused some confusion in the past, but I think the key and chest are always in the cave.
The normal way to enter the bird cave (if anything can be called normal) is to follow the tunnels collecting the TB logos as you go. If you explore these tunnels thoroughly then you should also be able to find a shark.
Thanks, O thin one
I'm pretty sure I've seen the treasure chest you mention, but not on my search yesterday. I actually tried to dive into the pool under the avatar pen, but couldn't - obviously I should have tried the pool you mention in its vicinity.
There's something fascinating about Maestro. It creates the impression that its very reluctant to give up its secrets - unlike Tr3s Lunas, which gives, and keeps on giving.
