Description

Lara and I counted more than 50 great blue heron in this one location through the fog this morning. This old, detached railroad dock is a common perch for belted kingfisher, herons, gulls and cormorants. Never witnessed this many blue heron together in my life. See added images for closer detail.

Description

White hymenium and stem with a canary yellow cap. I often refer to cascade chanties as the "white and yellow" or two tone Chanterelle. Fruiting in mid elevation with roots of Douglas fir in conifer dominant canopies between 2000-3000ft. in the cascade mountains but also occurring at lower elevations predominantly in October and November. Hymenium "veins" are usually arranged much tighter and deeper than other members of the PNW Chanterelle's such as C. formosus and C. subalbidus, another key indicator for the species. Just as delectable and similar in stature to the white and Pacific golden Chanterelles.

Description

Very large, robust species- fruiting in rather dry conditions in mixed coniferous forest. Somewhat buried in the duff. The cortina for this large Cortinarius is very thick and flexuous. Sometimes flexible enough to not break when pushed-especially with young specimens. Incurved, thick margins on cap.
