Bears, bears, everywhere
Friday, September 06, 2019
According to the local facebook groups there have been lots of bear sightings in town.
The park, on some of the trails, on the golf course and so on.
Today we were in the park and started down one of the trails into the bush to look for birds.
Husband saw a chubby bear on the trail, so we came out and walked along the edge of the park instead. We could see him through the trees, but he was a long way away. Husband would have gone on down the trail, but I was a bit reluctant as rumour has it that one of the bears seen frequently is a female with two cubs. I really don't want to get between a mama bear and her babies.
The osprey fledged earlier than usual this year. He was busy flying today and it looked like he was trying to catch trout from the fishing pond, but we didn't see him get one.
No other birds around except for a few crows.
