I like to take walks in the woods to relax, to avoid people and to pick mushrooms. There's one forest I know really well. I know my special places where to look for chanterelles and never be disappointed. So I was quite unhappy some days ago when I came to "my" forest and found it massacred like this.
One of my best places for chanterelles seems to be completely destroyed, the ground poached up and covered in fragments of felled trees. It's such a sad sight! I read on Wikipedia that among other factors encroachments like this let chanterelles decline.
That day I also found a feather of a jaybird.
