      They only have their crest during breeding season, and even then it’s kind of small and subtle. They get a little patch if white near the eye, I believe.

      Under your nose like a mustache? Never did that... we did throw them up in the air to see them come back down though... and we would stick cicada shells to our shirts like a piece of jewelry.

      very neat to find this one - it's so distinctive that I was able to positively ID it.
    4. Comment on Golden Crowned Sparrow - juvenile 2 months ago
      It was a nice little spot to hang out for a while. I'd bet if I'd been there in the early morning it would have been really hopping. The whole area used to be a fort, then a psychiatric hospital (part of it still is - across the street from the park area) until the 1960's. The puddle was on a foundation of a torn down building - nice wide and shallow - perfect for a bird bath. Lots of little birdies (mostly Juncos) were coming down to have a little dip.

      It would appear that Porodaedalea pini is a synonym and is the newest name. Things are changing fast the fungal world.... I think as dna sequencing becomes cheaper and faster we may see more and more taxonomy changes.
    6. Comment on Apologies needed, Lepiota magnispora 2 months ago
      I don't think that is an Agaricus... it looks much more like a Lepiota - likely Lepiota magnispora or possibly the much more rare Lepiota fuscosquamea. You would want to be *very* careful about ID's such as this. Lepiota are often deadly poisonous, while Agaricus augustus is a prized edible...

      Cucumber rolls (cucumber wrapped in rice and seaweed) - at the sushi bar.

      I thought it was a pretty neat color, it really was a bright, bright orange - yellow seems more common.

      Nothing you really wanted to be down wind of.....
    10. For sure. I knew as soon as I saw them that I’d never come across something quite so strikingly colored.
