Arthur-  In Peterson Field Guides Birds' Nests by Hal Harrison, Hummingbird and Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher are the only ones that look like this (round, lichen outside, plant down inside), but it says the Hummingbird's is only 1 1/2" by 1 1/2" outside diameter.  Gnatcatcher's is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".  Quote: "Compares with nest of Ruby-throated Hummingbird in beauty of construction".   Your photo is much better and more beautiful than the one in the book!
