We forgot to take down the bird seed feeder when we left Portal last week and the Black Bear took full advantage of our error. He/she knocked down the feeder and proceeded to have a feast of sunflower seeds. Halfway through the pile, she/he stopped to get a drink and then mosied out of camera range to take a humongous dump before returning to finish the seeds. In addition to the seed feeder, the Bear destroyed one of the apple trees eating all the little green apples and leaving broken branches in his/her wake.
Bud & I bought our dream house in Portal in December 2013 and find ourselves in a heaven on earth in this beautiful friendly community.
