What's growing on this birch?

I've picked chaga before. The clumps on the branches do not look like chaga to me but I thought I'd put this up for scrutiny.

I'm sorry those pictures are not the greatest. My camera takes good far away pictures but not up close. I'll take the I phone 3 out tomorrow and see if it's any better.

The tree is getting ready to break in half so hopefully I will be there soon after it happens to investigate closer.

The cavities on this trunk makes me think of good places to find chaga but I didn't see any. I did find some on another tree that was too high for me to reach. If I take my tallest son and a long saw I will harvest it. If not, oh well. It's fun just to find it.

How many more months until morel season?
