Incidentally enterprising folks, what the awesome Sax-Zim Bog w its amazing birds, wolves, & biodiversity & a town of Cotton & its great community conservation spirit need is a guesthouse / motel/ barn converted into B&B / ecolodge for birders https://t.co/EaFvpwUxEb

@RealBlueFalcon 4) spending lotsa lotsa time in the forest looking for them; 5) being very patient & enjoying the long times w/o target birds; 6) maintaining high situational awareness; & yes 7) dumb luck always good, like yesterday when I almost stepped on the ruffed grouse https://t.co/pzzBdrZgo4

Or else hire a bird guide! https://t.co/UdjowVYsl1

One locates birds & other wildlife by: 1) learning their habitat, geo distribution & favorite hangouts (birdwatching books or websites tell you great places for certain species) at various times of the year; 2) learning their calls & listening 4 them; 3) knowing their behavior 1/ https://t.co/sEfDmGt2WK

Somewhere inside the bog's mature boreal forest -- we certainly didn't locate it or attempted to trapple thru the bog. Just birdwatching from roads https://t.co/A5zrY8e0J6

Listening for calls, watching for movement against the moon, & yes, scanning w old fashioned flashlight. Night-vision goggles would be super-handy. But that's all dandy when the owl calls from next to the road. 1/2 https://t.co/pCkNWDgyro

No, found him 8am, aft having cruised the bog roads till 12:30am & then driving 1 hr to lodging. But as is always the case w nature, you see things if you put in the hours. In the morning, Athena rewarded us w strix nebulosa. They're raising chicks & so hunting during the day too https://t.co/2FlFpzkpGv

3/ 9:02am female faking injury to lead us away from nest 
Damn, it's a ruffed! Not a lifer but still pretty damn awesome, incl. her performance

1/ A birder's reward tale in a few tweets: owling until 12:30am, zip great gray, zip saw-whet 4am awake to hit forest @ 5am 8am deep on trail, mourning warbler calling Next 40 min: biting nails to eschew resorting to tape & go off path into bog to avoid damaging habitat

2/ 8:45am nails chewed off, giving up on landing the lifer mourning warbler 9am back on overgrown path, just about step onto nesting grouse 9:01am heart skipping beats - could be the mythically elusive spruce grouse?! https://t.co/EXMCMzVUaz

Paradise or what: aft birdwatching deep in the woods from 5am & at 1pm find off-the-beaten-track saloon frequented by locals only, hubby bangs out buncha songs on the local piano, & you get detailed tips on where to spot 2 packs of wolves, replete w awesome pics of 'em @ kills

2/ Then you're chewing fat w the locals in the saloon & ask how local communities take expanding wolf packs. The hunters grouse a bit abt deer #s down & hunting harder, but all pull out their cells w pics of wolves. I get a good feeling abt local conservation & coexistence https://t.co/FD9ao9THin
