Our resident bear (brown spot on his face, white spot on his chest) reappeared at Planter birdfeeder in 2010, after almost a year's absence. He caught us unprepared and had a feast at the birdfeeder without putting a dent in it.
In the past, bear visits had stopped around early May. In 2007, they continued visiting throughout the summer.

The month before, scat appears in road, in the same spot. About the same time, our sunflower heads were mysteriously lopped off at the top. He is prime suspect.
