This one’s a birch polypore, though not in its usual hoof-shaped form. Truly, I felt sorry for the tree, to have such a growth bursting forth.

    OUCH! that looks positively painful. We have birch trees but they are of the white skinned variety and to date I have never seen one with such a bulbous growth!
