What's the difference?

Just curious. What is the difference, if any, between Bird Dogging and Wholesaling?

Bird Dog - someone who identifies a potential good real estate investment opportunity and passes that information on to another investor for a fee.

Wholesale - to contract a property with the intention of reselling it quickly at a higher price.

A bird dog does not contract for the property or control it, he just passes the INFORMATION on to an investor.
