One area of discussion that affects us in ACA (read "especially those with bird feeders") was about the bear or bears currently hanging around ACA. As Keith Patton reminded us, "A fed bear is a dead bear" and he provided a video link that drives home the point: minimizing opportunities for bears to get food at houses, be it bird seed, pet food, unsecured garbage, etc. They'll move on naturally, hopefully sooner as opposed to later. (NOTE: The video link was designed for WY residentsl; while it's over the top for here, the basic principles are the same for all bear-human contact.)
And apologies to any neighbors of mine within earshot that hear an air horn go off in the dark of night (like last night). I've found it to be the most effective way to get one to move away from the house if it doesn't do so on its own.
