Although Black Bear sightings are common in Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro, this is the first such sighting in all the years I've been located here on Wolfeboro Neck. (Plus a Bobcat sighting earlier this season!)

There's a lot of other wildlife showing-up since this summer's lakefront din has quieted: just a minute ago, there were three Bald Eagles flying together! Where would Mom-Eagle, Dad-Eagle, and Junior have come from, I wonder?

A Tufted Titmouse just did some crazy circles on the porch, and a Chipmunk has been glaring at me to hang the bird feeder back up—on the porch.

I prefer my smaller wildlife visitors.
A lot of bear activity this year because of the general lack of mast crop. They’re searching far and wide as opposed to hunkering down in a mast rich area.
This means that more bears will likely be killed incidentally by other means than hunting/baiting. Lots of cubs seen too. Good idea to move inside with a sow and cubs this close.
