Documenting a walk through the woods and the wildlife, plants, and fungi seen along the way

Weekend Nature Walk: Flowers, Feathers, and Fungi in the Forest

By tych0_21 | MyMiscellaneousBlog | 25 Apr 2021


Despite a rather cold week and an unexpected late frost only a few days prior, things warmed up enough for me to head back out into the forest.

Lately, my walks have mainly focused on hunting for morels, and although I've been unsuccessful in finding any true morels so far this year, there's always plenty of other treasures to find outdoors at this time of the year.

Below are some of my observations of wildlife, fungi, and plants that I came across during my walks this weekend. Please feel free to offer your suggestions if you believe my identifications are incorrect!
