He was quite cozy just sitting there one morning after putting my feeders out after spending many nights eating the ground ones. I just can’t stop feeding my beautiful birds in the summer so I will just have to be very vigilant.

Not good! 😉 Makes my raccoons look like buddies.

For years now from April to Nov. I bring all my feeders in at night but every year one stubborn bear becomes a pain during the day. The DNR won’t do anything to trap and move them of course because we are discouraged to feed them summertime. That’s when ya see all the exciting ones though 🙂

Very cool. A bear, sitting on a branch, snacking on bird seed. Naughty bear!
