We went for a drive to Mayo and back today and saw 3 bears, 3 porcupines, 2 bunnies, 5 swans, and 2 ground squirrels!
Here is bear #1. Definitely a black bear. Looks like he has an old injury on the side of his face. He was eating plants, but I can see a scar and his lip doesn’t seem to close all the way:
Bear #2 which we wondered if it was a grizzly, but now looking at our photos of it, I think its just a light colour black bear.
Here is bear #3. Black bear I’d say, although lighter than the first bear, and darker than the second. He had a real spring in his step like he may have been a young one.
