Angry CArb/Starting help

Hello everyone, I am new to this so please bare with me. I have an 86 trans Am. It is a v-8 carb 305. I havent driven it in 2 years and i just started it the other day. It had no problems. Then i desided to clean out the carb air filter. There was a "nest" or sorts in it. Now today when i tried starting it, it would go into drive and everything else, but when i pressed the gas thr RPMs would drop and almost or stale completly. TOday when i turned it on, it start and the RPMS when flying up to about....3500-4000 then droped and stalled. What could be the problem?!?! thanks.
