I found this nest last night, April 11, 2017, on the north side of a dead pin Oak tree in my yard. It is about the size of my fist and appears to have something inside of the white outer coating /skin of the nest. What is it?

Nest? or Fungus???

Dear Betsy,
Because of its size, we suspect this might be a Fungus and not a nest.  We will attempt to research this more.  This image on New Hampshire Garden Solutions looks similar.
