Couple of black bears this AM
Went out for a hike this AM in Central Massachusetts. On the way back I noticed a large blob off to the side of the trail. I stopped and looked closely assuming it was a downed tree and much to my surprise I had found a nice sized black bear. It did not seem overly disturbed by my presence. I looked up the trail a few second later and caught a sighting of a second bear. I attached some photos but they are not good. I guess it pays to investigate any large black blobs while hiking as I almost missed the first one. I’ve had some other nice sighting while hiking this spring like wood turtles and owls. Hope everyone is having a good spring and if anyone needs a hiking buddy in Central or Western MA let me know.
