Sparrow on the grass next to a pond. Melospiza? Perhaps Lincoln's Sparrow?
Moss on a fallen tree. Photo rotated so top of tree is up. ID is tentative. based on originally vertical surface, plants curled up, and does not visually look like other mosses known to be in the area.

Tentatively identifying as Oyster Caps. Would appreciate confirmation. The colony is about 12" across, so each cap is a bit less than half that. Caps are very firm, but not woody. The whole group can be wiggled easily. They give a little, especially at the edges, and I have the impression I could break them with my hands. Gills below. Apparently growing directly on the ground in the woods, but there could easily be a decaying stump down there.
