We built a patio to the one side of the house that allows us to watch the birds feed, and some of these pictures I have shown on this site. We found that quite a variety were coming as long.
While the birds still do come, the squirrel population is doing well, as they come to these feeders. It seems to attract our friend Smokey too.
This is a black bear, and you wouldn’t know it. My wife shot this photo, as I was talking to her from work. The cub was apparently interested on what was inside the house. Good thing the patio doors were not left open like we usually do.
The interesting thing was the bear was actually coming to the patio window to have a look inside, and at one point actually stood on the house with it’s front paws while leaning against it.
This is the little bears second season.
Not fifteen minutes before this little one showed up, my wife seen a Mother bear and her cub. It was obvious that Smoky was causing some distraction for the mother as the cub was chased up a tree.
