I thought I would serve up some Turkey Tail, so I went out to the wood pile.....
Turkey Tail Fungus - Trametes versicolor
...and sure enough there was a clump of Turkey Tail Fungus growing on a log. Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) is a common wood decaying fungus found on hardwoods.
Turkey Tail Fungus causes white rot. The fungus shows up on stumps, or dead and fallen hardwoods, as a thin, leathery mushroom. The cap has contrasting color bands. The underside is white with many tiny spore holes.
Turkey Tail isn't exactly edible, however, there is a bunch of research on its medicinal value. The fungus may not be good eating, but it has many other uses besides rotting wood and looking like a turkey.
Truly, the mushroom has an amazing resemblance to Tom Turkey's fanned tail.
