Bear visited us in Nichols, NY

Huge bear visits Nichols, NY front yard

A couple of mornings we have come outside to find the bird feeders tipped over and the oiled sunflower seed gone. We figured a bear so we pulled in all the bird feeders. However we forgot to pull in the bin we housed the rest of the bird feed ~ we thought it was secured enough. Well we were wrong. Early Monday morning I opened the door to let our dog out when the clunk of the door startled our neighborhood black bear eating the bird seed from the bin. The bear stood up, turned and ran for our large willow tree. The bear climbed up and sat. The bear did come down to walk around for a little while, but stayed in the tree most of the time ~ so we snapped a few pictures. It was a very large black bear for our area. The bear stayed around for a few hours before leaving to the woods.
