The closer you are to the coast, usually you will have more luck with finding Ps. cyanescens. The added humidity helps them develop, and keep mycelium healthier through the dry season.

However, if you are near some cow pastures, in low lying areas where fog will be easier to accumulate, Liberty Caps are often growing around the cow dung, but, usually not right on it.

A 3rd common species is Panaeolus subbalteatus. These grow in large troops within compost piles and/or manure piles and even on well maintained (fertilized) lawns!

I would do some searching on this site and the internet on better descriptions and some keys to identifying them.
