wet woods and the muddy Root River


It's late August and time for the beginning of the autumn avian transect counts on the MCAMMP project (see it here). One of my favorite sites is adjacent to the Root River. These last few days rain has swelled the Root, and made the woods very wet, creating good conditions for the fruiting bodies of fungi (we call many of these mushrooms). Here's a large Boletus - I don't know which species it is. It's about 20 cm in height. There were also some Amanita sp. and other mushroom species present.
