In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.
I’ve been watching these fungi growing in our backyard for awhile. Unfortunately I didn’t document when I first noticed them, but I do have photos of them from back in October. They look like some type of shelf fungi, but I’m still a beginner mycologist. In Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest they look similar to fungi in the Tremetes family. There are two listed which may be close matches, Trametes versicolor, also called Turkey Tail and Trametes hirsuta.
