If you were a bear, where would you hibernate for the winter? . . This black bear (Ursus americanus) appears to have chosen this large cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) as its home for the winter. Bears spend the winter months in dens as a result of a lack of available food in the winter. They make their dens in hollow trees or logs, under a tree, in rock crevices, or dug into the ground. Bears may spend up to six months in hibernation, during which they do not eat, drink, or expel waste. . . To see the bear’s den for yourself check out our new webcam from the link in our profile. . . This bear was first sighted on March 23rd and we’ll keep the camera up until the bear moves on for the summer. Video description: A black bear watches a bird from a hole in a tree.
