Got home to day and found the bird feeders knocked over and carried into the overgrowth. Found this near the place I found the feeders. My question is this bear scat? This is at the top of Kyle and Break Drive.

I've been taking the feeders down April 1 and putting them back out in November. Summer I keep the birdbaths and hummingbird feeders. I still get lots of birds. 4 (9 hours ago)Parker Gordon:

You really need to put the bear feeders away! 3 (9 hours ago)Charles J Conway:
You got bears... they don't want anything to do with you and putting out bird food this time of year will certainly attract them (9 hours ago)Dan Dickson:
This time of the year they aren't bird feeders, they're bear appetizers. 1 (8 hours ago)Charles J Conway:

Many types of bears are not good climbers but a few are. Does anyone know if the bears that inhabit this area are good climbers ? (8 hours ago)Charles J Conway:
Yes (8 hours ago)Dan Dickson:
Wouldn't want to find out. (8 hours ago)Jay Walker:
Actually what I'm thinking is, if it is possible to mount the feeder on a line (e.g., clothesline or something similar ?) that stretches between two trees, so that the feeder is suspended in mid-air halfway between the trees, and mounted on either end at a great enough height, then it should be impossible for bears or deer or any other large ground animals to reach it. Obviously it would be a challenge for some to mount something on a tree that far up. Any tree climbers or ladder enthusiasts out there ? 😀 (8 hours ago)Joseph Godin:

Yeah, I know there are two problems remaining. (1) Making the feeder easily refillable, and (2) Making the feeder inaccessible by small critters that can crawl along the line, like squirrels and racoons. (1) can be solved with a crank and pulley on one end that would allow you to easily lower the feeder to the ground for refill, then crank it back up into place, all while standing on terra not-too-firma. In fact if you use a fishing pole reel for the crank and fishing line, the fishing line might be so thin that the small critters couldn't balance on it, which would solve (2). If not, then (2) a properly fashioned inverted cone should keep away the small critters that do make it out to the middle of the line. (8 hours ago)Scott Whitten:

Hello - I'm State Rep. Mindi Messmer. If you live in the area affected by the PFC release, please take this survey and share with others. I would like to get an idea of what health issues there are relating to this water issue. I'm tired of hearing people say there aren't any.
Please share with your friends! (5 hours ago)Jennie Paulette:

I saw someone had posted something about dogs being stolen so I figured I'd share this.
It originally came from Australia a few years back. Snopes is calling it false. However, the point still stands that you should keep a close eye on your pets sand report anything strange. (10 hours ago)Terra Butterfield Knowlton:
