Two nests...no ID

Can anyone help me identify the birds nest and the other
thing off to the side? It looks either fungal or maybe an insect nest of somekind.

Found in a falling down old house in Powell County, KY.

I'm no expert on nests, but I'd guess Eastern Phoebe. Looks about the right size and they frequently nest in human structures.

The thing to the left looks like a wasp nest; possibly some type of mud wasp.

Best,
Jim
