Probably eating catkins or something similar.

Great pictures too. :-)

Great photos, as always, and I also always enjoy your comments and observations on what you see and experience.  Your take on things seems to have a special resonance with the way I enjoy the bush.  Thank you for posting.

Great story and pictures. 

I'd like to imagine that the bear was simply giving into his curiosity to see what was up there. Once we got up there, maybe he needed a snooze?

Nice stuff, John.  Regarding the bear's behavior, I've got to imagine he was feeding on something.  Perhaps ants, grubs, oozing sap from woodpecker damage, etc.  I just can't imagine animals of that nature spending much time lazing about exploring without a purpose.  Knowing the constant need of food gathering, it is their primary focus and occupation (until breeding time hits).

Good luck to those frozen birds tomorrow night, by the way.

I agree with RobW with the bear eating catkins. My wife and I werein Killarney over the Victoria Day weekend and seen a bear with her 3 cubs snacking on catkins as well.

Have yet to get to Cedar, but John every report inches me closer!

Re: A bear in a tree , and some favourite stumps.

beauty pic's, John. What a treat to be 'entertained' by a bear in a tree, though I'd be a bit uneasy just cause of how long he hung around. Too bad about the health issue on the port - but as always, better safe than sorry. At least you got to visit a few old stumps from trip's past. It's rare to see Cedar so calm, glad that worked out for ya!
