I haven't been out doing much serious birding lately. I have though made it out to do some walks and found these fall fungi, a few of which are undetermined species. Enjoy what's left of the fall!

Copper Penny, not edible

Hedgehog Mushrooms, these are choice edibles to many!

Earthball, when you cut it open, you expose the black inside

Apricot fungi, edible but bland, I heard

Late Fall polypore, the liquid you see is not water but a resin coming from the fungi

undetermined mushroom, mycena?

Pink slime mould....yes pink!

Golden Pholiota

if this is the aborted entoloma, this mushroom parasitizes on another poisonous mushroom, but in this white aborted form it is edible

and lastly, a fairly common bracket mushroom, Turkey tail

Yes....this summer started out not so good, with the dry, hot weather but, it picked up in late August. Fungi are much harder to id to species level but, as least they don't fly away! There are over 700+ species in Ontario alone, some that could be unknown or not readily documented. A real challenge at times.
