    There are some spiders and a bird's nest in the chimney. Does '"nest" refer to spiders or not?
    Thanks

    No, the nest does not refer to the spiders. Because there is 'a' after 'and'. This will associate the nest only to the bird.
    The chimney has some spiders. It also has a bird's nest.

    A spider's nest is called web. So there is absolutely no connection between the spider and the nest. The nets belongs to the bird only
