Repetitive shapes caught my attention on mine and Buffy’s morning hike on Eagle Mountain.

I knew these were either turkey tail or false turkey tail mushrooms.

One has pores on the underside, and the other is smooth.

Turkey tails (Trametes versicolor) have the pores.

  1. I think those are all turkey tails. I like the ones that have purple in them.
