EEK! I thought we might get through this season without bears visiting our front deck (common in years past) ... but no such luck..... As hibernation time nears, a large hungry adult ("no not the one in the closeup photo") has returned to our canyon looking to fatten up before the long winter sleep. 2 nights ago... he roamed around the house looking for food... last night, he stepped onto the roof from the sloping adjacent hillside. I'm such a chicken ( smart chicken tho)! I definitely won't go out at night for a while!
