Black bears are medium-sized bears found in North America. The term "black" is a bit of a misnomer as these bears may be brown (cinammon), black, or even white (Kermode). Black bears may weight as much as 600 pounds, but most are much smaller. Males tend to be larger than the females.

Black bears are usually most active at night and in early morning and late evening. This young bear decided to snooze away the middle of the day not far from where I was photographing birds and other bears.
