Deep in the forest, there's a narrow path that our most shy wildlife love to use. I found it last summer after bear mating season had ended. Since then, mountain lions and bobcats have dominated it with an occasional bear wandering through.
After our huge spring storm, a mountain lion very slowly plodded through the snow. Then a deer and pair of dueling robins. After another mountain lion, the highlight of my spring arrived. Tiny the Black Bear sauntered through. He marked a tree with his trademark "sitting" style.
Seeing him on video made me so happy. He looked good, no different from last fall. Check out the video!
