Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

Conk Watch 2012 - March Supplement
The conks I have been keeping an eye on started to get moldy this week.
The same thing happened last year. I thought they were going to rot away and mostly ignored them for a month or so until I noticed that not only were they still there, but they had grown and there were of them.
One conk even sported some fuzzy mold growth.
I think the white parts of this conk are new growth of the conk fungus, growing over last year's moldy surface, which is what I saw last year, or at least what I interpreted that I saw.
