Early summer before berries/etc. is PRECISELY when bears think bird feeders are a great place to dine out!

Note the bear still is rather thinnish.
That bear does look young and lean, but not all ursids that come raiding my bird feeders look undernourished (night visitor last summer)

Quite true. People with guns with the bonus of being empty headed. tt
When we had an addition put on our house, one of the carpenters was boastful of not only poaching deer in a protected area of Quabbin Reservoir, he did it where the public it excluded completely = no trespassing, by going through the chain link fence at night. AND, licenses are distributed by lottery for culling ("harvesting" as the hunters call it) the deer population in Quabbin. How many laws can they break for the joy of killing something that barely regards humans as a danger? Idaho has decided to kill off about 85% of its wolf population. If enough hunters don't line up, they're planning to offer a bounty. If that doesn't work, the state is planning to hire professionals. And no standard "fair play" rules will apply = shoot, use dogs, hunt at night, shoot from a car trap, poison, kill them any way you can or want.

A great blue heron that is almost camouflaged in the uncroped image, easier to spot after cropping.
I do think that handsome gent is showing off his breeding plumage!

Another turkey image. Like most men, showing off to attract a lady who is indifferent, and making himself look a bit silly.

Another youngling joins the herd. A little hard to see laying down in the grass. Unfortunately I couldn't find a spot to legally park (the Park Rangers were out in force today) so the shot was taken out the window.

This is probably the same mangy fox who was hanging around over the winter. He seems to be hanging in but I really want to give him a bath and take him to a vet.

Mama-to-be no more. I hung around about an hour and hubby never checked in. Drinking at the bar, no doubt, while mom stays home and works.

One last image of goslings with one of the parents. The adult birds are ever-watchful and tend to make little goose noises constantly.

BTW: The pond, formed by a dam, is in the Scarborough Brook Conservation area which we approach going up hill on Gulf Road. The outflow from the pond makes a lovely stream that parallels Gulf Road. The road goes up a valley of variable width that has no buildings along most of its length. We got an automated message from the town warning that Gulf Road was temporarily closed because of damage caused by a beaver dam failure. We are full of curiosity to know where that beaver pond was, as there is none we know of up near the pond in this image, none along the outflow that parallels Gulf Road, and neither of us has noted a significant tributary flowing into that stream from the high ground on either side of Gulf road.

You may already know this, but adult geese can be very aggressive, I would imagine more so when they are guarding little ones. I used to know some people who kept "watch geese" on their property. The birds were very noisy and aggressive if people they did not know entered the property. A group of us used to ride horseback with the daughter of that family, and we would not dismount in their yard... the geese fussed a little bit but kept their distance from the horses. Woe unto anyone who dismounted...the geese would attack immediately.

Will be interested to know about the beaver dam collapse, if you find out more.
