    I'll post my wild local mushrooms here. Please feel free to do the same. All the mushrooms in this first post were found within 1 mile of my home.
    Here are some oysters:

    Maybe a Turkey Tail, let me know what you think

    Another like the one above but different coloring, also primordia and small maturing one

    And I liked this guy too. Was surprised by the toothy texture when I looked at the pictures. From below first and from above second.

    There were many others that I didn't post because it was raining and the camera lens was smudgy. Nice weather this weekend, more to come.

    Oh.. and if anyone wants me to collect any of these for identification or propagation, let me know, glad to do it.

    Looks like the weekend will be nice in my area. I'll be out and about in between pasteurizing vat after vat of substrate.

    about the turkey tails ... really looks like them but they could be Stereum sp. too. Which are harmless. It all depends if they had pores or were smooth on the bottom. turkey tails have the former.

    Was having a tough time with the camera, finally found a new cord.

    This one reminds me of the pics I've seen of tigers milk but I'm in the wrong area.

    Random little yellow mushrooms and the bottom of same. Again the color isn't true here. They were very yellow and the gills were yellow with a greenish tinge.

    Wow, thanks! Impressive knowledge. Sent me down a 'Google-hole' chasing the names you provided and each one took me further down the hole. There is so much to learn. I love the endless nature of this hobby.

    Redcat, Michelle, I took about ten pics of that bunch of birds nests before one was finally in focus, so it's mostly luck but I'm glad you like it just the same ;)

    Looks like the rain woke up the locals. Went for a walk after work and found a bunch of oysters last week. Actually got lost for a short time. The problem with looking for oysters is they live on the dead trees. The best way to find a dead tree is to look up and find the ones with no leaves or broken tops/branches. Consequently I walked myself in a crazy line from dead tree to dead tree for a couple hours and all the sudden it was dark. Oops.

    Today I took a walk with my granddaughter and found these and hundreds more. A loose tally of the 'oyster bearing' trees on this trail is somewhere around twenty. There seems to be two varieties so far. There's this one pictured that grows on alder and another that is growing on a dead spruce or fir, not sure which but definitely a conifer. The conifer variety has a brownish colored cap and is somewhat larger and wavier at the margin. I didn't go to that tree today but when I do I'll click a pic.

    The moldy ones are from spring. They dried there on the tree and molded as soon as they got wet.

    More fun. This first one shows up on super punky logs, primarily conifer. It is prolific, but small.

    This guy grew up out of the ground, most likely from the root of a Sitka spruce tree. The color doesn't show up in the picture but the margin is quite yellow.

    So many oysters. I found probably fifty trees today. Next time I'm bringing my ladder. One stand had five large trees all in one spot.

    I got so distracted I forgot my granddaughter was being dropped off and was "Lewis and Clark"-deep in the woods when I got the phone call and I had to run out.

    I don't mind living in the sticks at all. When I was younger I wanted nothing more than to get the hell out of here to a population center, which I did, but now... there's nowhere I'd rather be.
