This is kinda "old news", but I wanted to share the fun I had 2 years ago...one of the "3 bears" paid a visit to my birdfeeder! He liked it so much, he came back three times-I'm just happy he didn't try to get in the house! I suspect it was the oranges/grape jelly I had out for the orioles that drew him in, but as you can see from the toothmarks, he wanted at the sunflower seed, too. Good size mouth on that bear, judging from the distance between top and bottom toothmarks (he bit the feeder sideways). Later that fall, somebody shot a new state record bruin-660 lbs.! They got that one @ 10 miles away from my place...not real comforting to know that we grow them that big up here!

Yikes! Those are some teethmarks. Yogi and Boo Boo need to stick to the pic-a-nic baskets!
