Barbra, did I ever send you that link to the southwestern museum that seemed to have a similar piece?

Here's the link I apparently forgot to send you. :(

On display in Arizona: http://www.t-rat.com/Pages/FossilPreservation.html (go down to item 4. "permineralization")

Here's some links from the UK... looks like some of these were made INTENTIONALLY in the mid-late 1800s.

http://www.cinoa.org/art-and-antiques/detail/51871
http://www.derby.gov.uk/LeisureCulture/MuseumsGalleries/NaturalHistorytreasurePetrifiedBirdsNest.htm

Depending on the provenance (I'm guessing the Smithsonian can tell the real deal apart from the Victorian-era man-made stuff), these can be vanishingly rare, it would seem.

I saw a bird nest cast at the Smithsonian some years ago. Did you donate/loan out yours or did I see another? The one I saw was truly amazing!!!
