    I found these on a birch stump and on a live golden birch. Northern Wisconsin (Mercer). They look like oyster mushrooms but the are white and the edge of the cap turns up, rather than down. 20170819_080344.jpg 20170819_080344.jpg 20170819_080350.jpg

    Wow, a thread from last Aug., and a featured thread at that, and no responses yet. Obviously a little too late, but certainly look like oyster mushrooms. They do grow on birch, as well as other species. From the pictures, looks like the lower ones might have started to dry a bit, which is causing the edges to yellow and turn up. Larger one on top looks nice and fresh, though probably not now 8 months later ;) They also grow in spring, so keep an eye out when weather turns and we are finally able to start gathering again this year.
