Birds nest fungi are saprophytic fungi that is they grow on decaying debris such as wood chips, logs, branches etc, when young the top of each fungus is usually covered with a protective covering called a epiphragm, this covering brakes away as they grow and the eggs can then be seen, these eggs are in a gel like liquid which holds them in place some kinds also have a mycelial cord attaching them to the interior of the nest this cord is called a funiculus.
The sides of the nest are shaped in such away as to cause the eggs (peridioles) to be splashed out as far as 7 feet when a rain drop falls into them, they then attach themselves to whatever they land.
