New bears move in
A new mama bear and two cubs showed up at the bear den, and it looks like they intend to stay. Brian just checked the cam and emailed me this selection of pictures.
Mom gathered grass and shrubs and pulled them into the burrow.
The two cubs are bigger than the last two, which means they are yearlings.
They earned their upkeep by helping mom.
Whether mom is pregnant or not, this will be the cubs' last winter's sleep with her.
I think we are witnessing the beginning of a long winters' nap. Damn, these camera traps are fun!
