Alder cone
“In winter flocks of siskin and redpoll frequent the reserve, feeding on alder.”

Too late, I think they already did.

An even older alder cone on the ground was covered with this yellow slime mold (?). Stupidly I didn’t photograph the characteristic yellow dendritic threads nearby which led me to identify it as a slime mold.
