A spruce bog is a habitat that I am totally unfamiliar with so as of now, I don’t have a whole lot of information. It is a really amazing habitat and hosts a huge diversity of wildlife as they typically are somewhat small and create a lot of edge effect, where two habitats come together. In late fall and winter, bird life is relatively quiet. However, just this morning I saw Ruffed Grouse, American Crow, Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, and more. Early in the year I had huge flocks of Song and Swamp Sparrows and other fall migrants including several Ash-throated Flycatchers. Mallards and Wood Ducks as well as Canada Geese call this marsh home as well. Spring and summer host numerous breeding warblers and other songbirds and I will bring you more on that in the spring.
I have also seen other wildlife including Muskrat and signs of Beavers. Red and Grey Squirrels and Eastern Chipmunks are common and I can only imagine what other wildlife comes to drink. Earlier in the fall, before the temperatures dropped, frogs were numerous but I was unable to get a good look and identify them to species. Again, lots more to come in the spring.
