This adult male black bear made a brief appearance in my yard. He was attracted to the bird feeders filled with black sunflower seeds. In this photo, he was stretching to reach the feeder that was seven feet off the ground. As you can see, he was successful in tearing off the bottom of the feeder and rewarding himself with a load of seeds to feast upon. After this bear visit, I left the feeders unfilled for a few days in hopes that he would take his appetite and destructive behavior somewhere else. My plan worked; I only saw him around for about 24 hours and haven't seen sign of him since. Visit my Critters gallery to see more images of him.
