Jenny's Bear Story...

Contrary to popular belief, bears do not hibernate. They go into torpor defined as a state of lowered physiological activity typically characterized by reduced metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and body temperature that occurs in varying degrees especially in hibernating and estivating animals. Below Jenny tells about her hungry bear visitor. So dang cute.

I came out of the bedroom to sit down and read. I see a bear balancing on our upper deck rail, reaching for the bird feeder (seed). We bring it in each evening, and never really expected a bear to come out and up in the daylight.
Well, I grabbed my camera but didn't start get photos until he was off the rail.  My first reaction was to start yelling at him to chase him off the deck and make sure he knew he wasn't welcome up here.
He was a good bear and stopped in our front yard to eat berries off the snowberry plant.

The poor little birds will only get seed while we're here watching from now on.
