A couple days ago, we had a yearling black bear (Ursus americanus) come up to the top of the hill. We had not anticipated that putting out a bird feeder with seeds and such would cause such a big commotion on the mountain. Long story short, Poo Poo the bear (so-named because he left us a nice present behind the RV) stole the bird feeder and contents and has been coming back for more. He is a cute little fella, probably about 125 lbs. of cinnamon. He is very fearless and curious, but not at all aggressive. We are sure he will go away after he figures out there is no food to be had up here. We will not be feeding the birds (except the hummers) this year.
