Bears do not like wind.  The rustling of leaves and branches distorts their excellent sense of hearing, and they aren’t able to identify sounds.  Therefore, the slightest thing may be perceived as a threat.  All four of the ABR bears reacted to the wind.

A special treat for all four of the bears was honeycomb!

Honeycomb – yum!

Though many people think that bears raid bees’ nests to get the honey, the real attraction to them is the fat and protein-rich larvae.  But, since they do have a sweet tooth, they enjoy the honeycomb as dessert.
