Hen of the Woods / Maitake
This beautiful and delicious mushroom is usually found growing at the base of mature oaks, but may be found under other deciduous trees, as well. It has a very meaty texture and earthy flavor, and is also a highly prized medicinal mushroom. The color can vary from pale to brown, gray, or black. The underside is white, and has a smooth pore surface rather than gills.
Chicken of the woods
This easy to spot and identify mushroom is found growing out of fallen logs, stumps, and dying roots of both hardwoods and conifers. Both species are bright orange on top, and either yellow (sulphureus) or white (cincinnatus) around the edges and underside, which has a smooth pore surface rather than gills.
