Mushrooms & Fungi
Starkey’s woods are also full of seasonal mushrooms and other fungi that sprout on trees and logs, grow on the forest floor, and hide among fallen leaves. Caution: don’t pick or eat. Many mushrooms are poisonous, some deadly. (All mushroom and fungi photos courtesy of Tim Myles).

       Turkey Tails

Fly Agaric

Animal tracks
Even in winter, when the ground is snow-covered, Starkey has secrets to reveal. Look for the tracks of rabbits, mice, raccoons, squirrels, deer and other forest inhabitants. How many can you spot?
