It was quite a sight as the kids and I woke at 6:30 this morning. Our eyes feasted on the sight of this beautiful animal as she feasted, and ruined our feeders!!
We always take the bird feeders down in April, but this summer we decided to keep them up. Maybe we are getting old and wanted to sit and watch the birds all year on the back porch… we did think twice about it, knowing how close the woods are, but still took the chance. I’m bummed… all day long I would see the bright yellow goldfinches, and red cardinals from my studio window… I guess I’ll have to do something else for entertainment!
This first picture (through the kitchen window) is when she came back the second time . The others are from the back porch after my son Luke got his air soft pellet gun to scare her away. A lot of help that did… the tiny plastic pellet didn’t even make her flinch!
It’s so funny as I write this at 10pm and just about to hit publish, I hear a rattle of a garbage can… looking out with a flashlight I see one happy bear.
