[Tweeters] RFI: North Cascades and Rainier National Parks

Hi all,

I'll be visiting North Cascades & Mt Rainier National Parks in two weeks
and was wondering if anyone had any birding advice for those parks? We'll
be visiting each during the week, in hopes of avoiding the most intense
traffic, etc.

The two biggest target birds are Black Swift and Sooty Grouse.

Secondary target species include: Clark's Nutcracker, Black-billed Magpie,
White-tailed Ptarmigan, Pine Grosbeak, Three-toed & White-headed
Woodpeckers, and Lazuli Bunting.

Also interested in just generally birdy spots/trails, and good locations
for seeing mammals (mountain goat, pika, bears, etc).

And would I be correct to assume that finding Flammulated, Boreal, Spotted
or Great Gray Owl would be extremely unlikely? And in the case of Spotted,
any location information shouldn't be shared, to protect the species, right?

Thank you!
