Good morning, I observed something so strange this morning. There are several dozen juvenile tree swallows all over the back lawn at the Montezuma Audubon Center (presumably staging?) fluttering in the air and landing on the ground. I watched multiples feeding on these small white mushrooms, which iNaturalist tells me are milky conecap. I have a picture of the mushroom with feeding marks on it if anyone wants to see. I am trying to get a picture of the swallows actually feeding on the mushrooms but they won’t hold still!
