Yeah, they are great, but also cost some $725 a set. I have a picture where I wrote in all the names, but I don't know how to put it online. I will see if I can upload to the gallery.

Does anyone have a picture or link to a bird's nest with the labeled parts?
I looked but cannot find one.
Thanks!

I am not sure that there are specific "parts" to a nest. You would be better off investigating various building materials.

I looked up some nesting types though,

Egg cup-what robins do, your stereotypical nest
Natural Cavity- owls and woodpeckers, made in trees or already there
Nest box- Human made
Complex weave- made intricately hanging, look up orioles nests to see

also, eggs come in shapes, allowing for adaptations that help visibility or motility

I happen to know that the school that is running Ornithology at a few invites(not mine, but close by) used stuffed birds and nests borrowed from our town's nature center. I agree, definitely check it out.
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.
