    what's the connection? or is the hummingbird just an indicator of spring?

    IMG_3122.JPG I found a tiny morel (about 1.25" tall) in Charlotte, NC. I'm guessing one to two weeks before they really get statted.

    Looks like oak and hickory leaves around those little guys. You found those in Charlotte?

    Yes- but on private property. Lots of oak, but no hickory. Also it's around a large sycamore in a creekbed. I think that might be a combo to look for from what I've been reading.

    Hoping to find some (or get some started) on a property in Asheville with oak, hickory, and tulip poplar. Fingers crossed that they will like that area!

    Hi! I've got a few spots. Going to check one today. Good luck hunting. Maybe we can get together for a foray.

    I checked three Indicator Spots yesterday with no luck. I know Morels fruit here, so they just are not quite up yet. I am in Concord, NC. I suspect this nice rain last night will help a lot.
