Hada on a Black Birch

Image

Spotted on a Black Birch on Sugarloaf during an ANS Tree Field Trip: an hada escaped from Pan’s Labyrinth.

Tree ID notes: this is an older Betula lenta pointed out by Melanie.  Its bark becoming more peely/plated. The horizontal lenticels that make it look like a Cherry are still visible. When twigs can be reached to scratch and sniff they smell exactly like wintergreen lifesavers.
