Eagle - Golden or Bald

We had a eagle land on the large single tree in the front yard today. We could not tell if it was an immature Golden Eagle or immature Bald Eagle.

The bear came back

The bear that recently had his way with the humming bird feeders must have sensed that I was out for a few days. He left teeth marks and cracked one of the 3 feeders and knocked another down completely.

Its time to bear proof the feeders. A neighbor says this particular bear is pretty harmless, but I still don't need a visit from a large mammel with sharp teeth and claws. It just messes with my delusion that I'm the top of the food chain to much.

House Wren hatchlings are getting ready to fledge

The house wren house cleaning refered to in a previous post is coming to its natural conclusion. I just noticed that the hatchlings are starting to look out of the bird house hole and wondering if they could just go and catch their own food. Soon they will.

Bear Alert

I read the other day that the bears seem to be hungry this year because its been to dry. The dry weather keeps there food from growing fast enough.

Well, today I had a up close and personal experience when I discovered a 400 lbs bear perched on a railing, slobering up sugar water from a hummingbird feeder.

Moments after I took this short video, I used loud noise scared him away.
