Description

Growing on soil under mixed evergreen forest, specifically under Douglas Fir. These mushrooms were alongside the trail. Gilled, cap not wet or slimy. Appeared to be yellow in color, staining black in age. Younger showed yellow, while older rotting specimen were pure black. I think this could be a form of waxy cap, something I've heard called a 'Blackening Waxy Cap' but I don't know and certainly don't know the scientific name.

Definitely saw one. Two other birds that were probably thrushes were already around. They were in the brush under the trees rather than out in the meadow like the other birds this walk.

Before he appeared there was a lot of chatter in the meadow. As soon as he came out all the chatter stopped and he lazily flew around and then away. I actually saw another hawk later much farther away that I think was also red shouldered but can't be sure due to the distance.
