Black Bears up north Sept 2014

While on holidays we saw 7 bears.  This one walked right beside the car

This bear was at the dump.  He weights around 500+ 


what a huge tongue. More bear shots to come.

Turkey Vulture. 60-65 days old just fledged. August 24, 2014

Invited by Charm to see her Turkey Vulture living nearby I was so excited and thrilled to see the two juveniles on the roof.

Notice some down feathers around the neck and wing area.


Enjoying the heat of the dat

Big big bird - juvenile has a black head 

A great sight of the tv flying 

second tv was watching us very closely. No sign of the adults.

Thanks Charm.
