Perhaps an old woodpeckers nest. Seen in a dead tree with many holes in it, twigs and grass sticking out of one of the holes.
A plant that was growing in bunches, this small plant had two leaves branching out at 180 degrees of each other, and from where those two leaves met two stems branched upward with one leaf and then multiple small white flowers sticking out on opposite sides of the stem. Many of the flowers had not started to flower yet and were just buds.
This shrub lined the trails at Discovery Park, and it stood probably about eight feet tall. The leaves were very broad, and they were just flowering with their white flowers with four petals. There were no berries to be seen at this time.
A large fungus at the bottom of a red alder, it resembled a shelf, and it was very hard. It had a white lining on its perimeter, and underneath the plants were very rust colored from the spores form the fungus.
Tall shrub standing about 15 feet tall, it had a base with about 7 trunks that dispersed up and out. The branches had cones almost identical to alder cones, as well as the catkins that are also common in alders. However, the leaves were not identical to the leaves of the Sitka Alder, so I do not know what it is.
It looks like it may be part of the carrot family, this plant stood about eight inches tall, with very hairy stalk that is purplish at the base, and fades into a green color. The leaves were sort of orbicular shaped, but with serrated edges and five small distinguishable points that the veins of the leaf led to.
A moss that is sort of shape like a fern, its leaves branch out oppositely on a relatively flat plane, tapering into a fine point at the end of the moss. It exhibited a sort of yellow green color.
Seen in abundance, this tree had a grayish bark with some white splotches, and catkins and very small cones hanging from the branches. The cones were also seen all over the ground.
A strange looking fungus that was an orange color and resembled little balls on a dead log on the side of the path. They were in a little group, and look like slime molds, but I do not know what they are specifically.
Seen on almost every stinging nettle plant, these spots of spittle seen are indicative of the spittlebug.
By far the most dominant species in Discovery Park, stinging nettles were everywhere, some of them even getting to be almost as tall as me. I got stung by a couple of them on my feet, which helped support my identification. Most of them also had sort of flower like structures hanging down as well.
A light green plant with seven small, thin leaves that came out in a circular fashion around the stem. The undersides of the leaves were very sticky, and the plant was very prolific, spreading everywhere and growing all over the other plants. They had single very small white flowers.
