Fugi

I walked around Cambridge and around Harvard's campus. I originally walked around Harvard Square and I didn't find any fungi, but I walked onto the campus and found a wide variety of fungi surrounding the trees. The weather was around 45 degrees, and it was very windy outside. I walked for at least 45 minutes and I noticed that I was only able to find mushrooms around trees that were moist, or with dark soil. After a while, I was able to know which trees would have fungi around them based on their appearance. I was surprised that each fungus that I saw was a different variety. I also found fungi growing inside the root of a tree which was interesting! On my walk, I saw two turkeys chasing students around campus and several birds hiding in trees. I didn't observe any insects on my walk, which could be due to the cold weather.
