And we saw one distant song sparrow. And a robin. And Laurie saw a few goldfinches before we entered the bog. That's it.
Oh, well. We did see these:
Orange and white polypore on a dead stump.
Some kind of crust fungus, smeared and hardened on a log. This is a close look, to show the pores.
More turkey-tails, with a colour variant.
A nicely-layered shelf fungus.
Tiny mushroom, mosses and ice-blue lichens.
And a humongous gall, bigger round than the tree plagued with it. For size comparison, that's Laurie's shoulder poking out from behind the tree.
We had gone down to the bog for a short walk; we came home three hours later. There was much to see; I'll have more photos tomorrow.
