And this is why you don’t feed the birds in North Georgia in the summer

Bear at bird feeder 1

I know better.  I really do. But I do like to watch the birds at the bird feeders, and we hadn’t seen a bear here in several years.  So this year I bought a feeding station and put out 3 feeders. The birds have loved it, and this morning so did this little bear.

I watched the bear out of my kitchen window for half an hour and photographed it through the window.  When the neighbor, who did not know the bear was out there,  let their dog out the bear took off through the woods.

    Wow! Do you think he’s a newly independent youngster, or is mom hanging around somewhere close?


    1. We think he’s newly independent and possibly just passing through. He was too large to be a cub.
