    Nuthatch, the fish are jumping all around. The bear looks as though he is getting plenty to eat. Also, quite a lot of birds around. Enjoyed the scenery. Like Vicky it made me cold.

    The birds are there for the scraps. When fishing is good, the bear only takes a few big bites, then moves on to fish again. It's such a unique time, I'm sure the birds look forward to it.

    Yes, the bear just caught a rather substantial fish and was happily eating most of it while on top of a rock. One gull who had been watching him like a hawk (or like a gull) suddenly became three gulls, and the minute the bear left that rock, along came one of the gulls to pick over what was left.

    Tactful of them to wait until the bear had moved elsewhere, I think.

    Cool

    They wait so the bear doesn't make it a two course meal, salmon and bird.

    That bear never gets full. He was out in the water and all he had to do was reach down and when he came up there was a fish in his mouth. He would take big chunks out of the fish, let go of what was left and then go on to another one.

    Both bears were out today, but not acting like they were that interested in eating. They would kind of look like they were going to fish a little, but then they would just kind of forget about it. Do they never get cold? Even in that heavy coat they have on they have been out there a long time.

    Good fishing season for those two bears I'm seeing. Those would be salmon swimming into the waterfall, I assume.

    They swim upstream to spawn and die. The effort of getting there seems to wear them out, and I can see why. Swimming against the current has to be hard, even for a fish.

    I understand that they have a knack for finding the very stream where they were born, and that's where they head in order to spawn.
