Just back from the Charlevoix where five days birding, whale watching and, finally, Black Bear watching made a welcome change from work.
The year list benefitted from several additions but more of the birds in a later post. A highlight was watching up to seven different Black Bears as they took advantage of a feeding site, our first wild Black Bears ever.
Below a few photos. The bears were about 120m away in the evening light so the shots are not pin sharp. The site is a cottage industry showing tourists the bears and funding a cub rescue system from the takings. The bears are totally wild and their trust is gained over a period of time.
