What kind of mushroom?

Got these all over the yard where I cut down old ash trees. Any idea what they are? Thanks.

Almost looks like honey fungus. Can't be sure though without some close ups of the cap top and underside. Honey fungus have a ring underneath the cap that goes around the top of the stem which was the veil.

Are you by chance in the South Hills of Pittsburgh? I swear I saw several large clumps of mushrooms that looked just like that in a yard on my drive home last week.

Those are ringless honeys. They generally grow in grass. The ringed are usually on or near dead wood. Take a piece of black paper or plastic and put the cap on it. It should leave a white spore print after an hour or so.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Are the eatable? They are over the grassy area of my yard. Probably not going to eat them just wondered.
Thanks.

Yep, they're edible. Along with the white spore print, the way they grow clumped and the way the stems are tapered at the bottom are ways to positively ID them. I only eat the caps because the stems tend to be woody. If you get them when they're just buttons they're best. They say you should try a small amount first because some people will get some gastric discomfort from them. I've eaten a bunch of them with no ill effects.

Yu know they could be Honey Fungus?... But they also look like Jack O Lanterns too... As you know Jacks are poison.. They just seemed to clump together to ne Honey Fungus... I sure hope you didn't eat any?
