This bear has a pair of nice yellow earrings that were put on to identify it. I was alerted that something was in the backyard when my parrot started screaming, and I looked out and saw the bear heading towards the feeders. It quickly took down one tube feeder that I just filled and went into the woods to eat the seeds. I wanted some photos, so I waited for it to come back for the second tube feeder. After I got enough pictures, I went out and made a lot of noise and chased it away, then took down the feeders until next fall.
