Ursula and Spanky - UPDATE August 13, 2019

I like the picture Catherine Davison from England took today of Ursula. Ursula by DavisonUrsula by DavisonIt shows the rich color of her muzzle that distinguishes her. However, what makes her a favorite is not her looks. It’s her gentle personality. However, she did show some attitude when 4-year-old Spanky came too close to her cubs.

On the pontoon boat ride yesterday, the two loons we saw starting a nest some weeks ago were loafing together without chicks. I suspect something happened. Maybe next year.

It was a great day of bears, observing, and learning. Very thankful for the good times of these courses.
