Sidewalk Mushrooms

You really don't have to go far to find nature. The other day I was at Phoenix Lake and only found a few smatterings of fungus, and then back here in my own neighborhood I see these impressive clusters of brown mushrooms growing from the roots of a sidewalk tree (at Waller and Belvedere, if you're a local).

The irony about identifying plants and fungi is that the most common varieties are often the hardest to identify. There is no end to the number of brown mushrooms with crowded white gills. I guess they're some kind of Honey Mushroom, anyone think differently?
