Bears, Hugs, and Ravens - UPDATE June 20, 2024

2 cubs, maybe Chloe's

Bear hugBear hugOn this first day of summer, mating season is in full bloom. Males are offering hugs, some accepted and some not. Two-year-old Bertha and her boyfriend (not pictured) looked sweet and sounded sweet as they walked side by side up the driveway. He was saying nice things in a somewhat high-pitched voice.

With bears being distracted by each other, ravens took opportunities to steal mouthfuls of food.

Just now, an unknown mother left three cubs in our big white pine. I wish she would show so we know who it is. Oops, just now she led them off. Maybe Chloe. Not sure yet.
