Bear Decides To Sit Next To This Guy At His Campsite. I Had To Hold My Breath While Watching THIS

We think of bears in the wild as potentially very dangerous to humans, while still holding this romanticized notion of “cuddly as a teddy bear” or “just a sweet big bear [of a man]”.  A camper at the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge was peacefully watching from above as bears were fishing in the river below.

Drew Hamilton, an employee of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, was sitting in his camping chair when out of nowhere an Alaskan brown bear walks up next to him in a very relaxed fashion. He takes in the peaceful scene, Hamilton is viewing, yawns and takes a seat.

As Hamilton is a professional, he seemed to intuitively know that keeping calm and still was the way to go.  He videos the bear, who almost seems human taking in the beautiful moment of nature.  Incredibly, he seems disinterested in Hamilton, (probably because he remained completely calm) watches the bears below and eventually goes on his way, probably to join in the fun below.

Hamilton’s calm reaction to this amazing moment in the wild, that had the potential to be extremely dangerous, serves as a great example of how to behave when faced with a wild bear in the majesty of nature.  Enjoy the video and please share this amazing moment in the wonders of nature.

This Crazy Bird Walks Over To A Couple. What He Says Makes Them Burst Out Laughing!

Birdwatching is a fun way to interact and connect with nature. Many people assume it is an activity for people who really, really, really like birds. While that is partly true, it’s also for those who want to get outside and explore new places while actively being aware of the many species and types of unique birds different places have to offer. Birding requires one to listen, search out, and pursue birds which can be very enjoyable and even therapeutic in a sense.  

Even if you are not an avid birdwatcher, hopefully you can appreciate a beautiful one when it crosses your path. The bird in this video is quite the brunch companion. The friendly feathered fella happily chirps up a storm, making odd and amusing sounds to the delight of a couple who taped the interaction.

They attempt to mimic and sing along with the black and white colored bird, laughing and smiling the whole time, as he noisily answers them back. A commenter below the video wrote that this type of bird is a black collared starling, and after an image search it appears that they are correct.

Wikipedia says this bird is not endangered and is mainly found in then tropical or subtropical dry forests of China, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Brunei. One of those places is where this video was likely captured, and it must have made an awesome memory for the couple who interacted with the chirpy bird!
