Go to sleep, go to sleep, Little Bruin

Caught the big birdseed-eating bear in the act - it was a couple of feet from the back door pulling down the last remaining feeder hanging off a flower hook.  Expecting the bears had gone to sleep for the winter, I set up our annual feast for the chickadees, magpies, grosbeaks, and redpolls - too early this year.  It only took a couple of days for the bear to find the feast and eat up the 20 pounds of birdseed.  Now we just hope that a big bellyfull of birdseed will make the bear drowsy.
