Description

Unfortunately, I didn't spend much time checking this out. Here is all I remember:

pale green (about the same color as the Niebla lichen), looked like thick crusts on rock edges, some areas looked to have apothecia (?) (some with brown centers, others with just slightly darker green centers and light rims).....

a type of Lecanora (rim lichen)?

This is a place holder to remind me to go back soon.

Stephen Skardvedt showed me and Lizzy the location originally. I went in the building for a meeting, and on coming back out, the nest was unoccupied, so I took a quick look and saw two eggs. I backed away, the female returned to incubate and I snapped the photo.
