Hi Harlan

As Paul says we could do with better photos of the gills and their attachment to the stem.

with the colouration and lack of distinct scales on the stem i'd be looking at Armillaria, Honey fungus.

A spore print is always really useful in identifying fungi and would quickly decide between these two suggestions

Armillaria - white

Pholiota - brown

Make-a-Mushroom-Spore-Print

 

cheers

Mike

I would think Pholiota as the others have said, Armillaria mellea would surely have a very clear ring on the stipe. Unless its a different version or Armillaria.

It's a fair point, but it looks to me like these are young FBs, where the veil is still intact and the ring has yet to form. 

Colour could be down to photo, but looks more orange rather than the yellow/brown of Pholiota.

Hopefully OP can do spore print and decide for sure
