Bears in the Night, Winter Birds Arriving - UPDATE October 2, 2018

The yard light showed two adolescent bear buddies on the scale recording their joint weight. The closeness that develops between play buddies is nice to see. They will share food nose to nose without any strife.

Chickadees are back in number, eating seeds and plucking insects from tree branches.
