From RT 10/15 which you are on coming into CA....
Take RT 20/132 N. which runs along the East side of the St Lawrence River.
Take Exit 17 to Marie-Victorin Blvd
Look for #1161 Restaurant la Saulaie on the left. There is a Ducks
Unlimited parking area just past this.
The owls can be located in the 'woods/field' across the road. The track
around this area is very well worn altho the owls are not easy to
find. Hopefully someone else will be there to help!
The Boreal has a roost that looks well used by the amt of whiting on the
cedar branches below. It is in the line of cedars that run along the left
side, fairly near the back. Look for a track that is very stamped down
next to the main track. (When I say, track, I mean a path worn in the
snow). The owl was about 15' off the ground in a cedar (if you are facing
towards the road in the right place.) It was only about 3' in from the
edge of the tree.
The Great Horned Owls are nesting there. We did not disturb the nest and
it would really be impossible to describe where we saw the one roosting -
high in a pine tree to the back right hand side.
However, the Saw Whet was in the cedar grove that runs parallel to the road
about half way along. Look for tell tale sign of scat? (blackish stuff in
this case), pellet or partically eaten prey on the ground. Good
luck. The spot is easy to find. The birds are not.
