A Bear Surprise - UPDATE October 23, 2019

After not seeing a bear for days, two sweet bears showed up well after dark on this rainy evening with spurts of snow. YearlingYearlingBoth males, one was a yearling with a small blaze all bulked up and fluffy for winter. The other was bigger, possibly 3-year-old Fred. Nice to see them. We’ll have to study the pictures for possible identifications. Then 3 flying squirrels took over until the larger bear took his turn. Neat. The red squirrel is from earlier this evening for comparison with the flying squirrel—both are about the same size.
