Black bear digging


This is a nice black bear sow getting real deep into the log for food. She has twin cubs, both also black and they love to climb the cedar tree just behind the buried log. Bears diet changes during the year so knowing what they eat helps find their location. Berries during the late part of summer is a good choice as they fatten up for winter.

Great pic Cliff. I sometimes have found bears by hearing them tossing the logs around in the forest. They sure can make a racket.

What's the difference between this bear and the previous pic? Why is this one jet black while the other is brown? Is the answer obvious like one is a black bear and the other is a brown bear? Or is it the camera settings, lighting, etc?

Black bear coloration can be from light brown all the way to black, still called a black bear but have different color and markings.
