COG did years ago have boxes of old nests that we
trotted out at exhibitions, maybe those are still kept somewhere. That is when
COG would put on exhibitions. Though I don't know if they are much use if we
aren't certain whose nests they are. Collecting feathers and other bits (and
eggs that I don't think any of us would do these days) requires a permit.
Probably doesn't apply to nests.
