Here are some images of a mushroom I found in Greenlawn Cemetery in Salem. I cannot ID it using the Audubon guide. It has a white spore print. Can anyone help?
Am delighted to be following Lena’s Corner — a brand-new blog.
Will soon be getting on a British Airways jet to head to London for a “Dickens Week.” Can’t wait!
Okay, all you birdwatchers out there — I sighted a pair of these on the bank of a tidal river in Salem, Massachusetts over the weekend. Looks a lot like a Lesser Yellowlegs to me. Migrants on their way down the coast, perhaps delayed (or derailed) by Superstorm Sandy? Or something else? A Short-Billed Dowitcher, which I also wouldn’t expect around here?

Here’s a still shot of the group, showing off some of the females….
Here are some still shots of male Buffleheads…..
