Adorable Black Bears Searching For Grubs and Grazing (Videos)

When you think of black bears, you may not consider that part of their daily routine is grazing! But, according to the National Park Service, black bears graze on a variety of grasses. Black bears also search for grubs and will use their claws to dig in the ground for these tasty treats. They also climb trees in their search for food. Read more here. They are excellent at identifying edible yummies and can smell food up to 20 miles away!

As summer winds down, black bears will soon go into hyperphagia mode. Hyperphagia is a period when black bears have an intense and persistent sensation of hunger. They gain enormous amounts of fat to help them get through the winter.
See my previous post on the bears entering hyperphagia phase, ‘Black Bear Steals Bucket From My Front Porch’. Click here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Lots of Love,

Seven Coolest Bear Trail Cam Videos

Black Bear: Trail Cam (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2022

Hey Everyone!

The bears here are ‘hangry’ during their hyperphagia state. Read more here.  And oh boy, did they enter that stage of angry-hunger! They have been wandering around the neighborhood eating my neighbors’ grapes off the vine and smelling the delicious food from the camper’s trailers that are about 1 mile away. 

During hyperphagia, bears need to eat ten times the calories they would normally consume which is about 20,000 calories a day.

Bears can smell over 20 miles away for any delicious food or carcass on the side of the road. Our trail cams captured the black bears sniffing behind our home in the woods for anything yummy to eat.

Read more about the bear’s sense of smell from the Section Hiker here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos! πŸ™‚

Warm Wishes,

September is a special time for black bears. The bears enter hyperphagia and look for food up to 20 hours a day! They have definitely been more active in the back of the woods near our trail camera. Read more about bears in September here.

Hope you have fun watching these trail camera videos.

The bears are very active this summer. The videos below show them enjoying themselves around 10 pm, playing in the rain, and searching for food. The mother bear is training her cubs to be independent. The cubs are exploring by themselves and are on a quest for some adventure! They will begin hibernating in late fall and will remain in their dens until Spring. So, it’s time to party-hardy before the summer is over! 

Warm Wishes,

Kurt & Debra


β€œGrizzly bears and black bears generally do not eat, drink, defecate, or urinate during hibernation. Bears live off of a layer of fat built up during the summer and fall months before hibernation.” β€”Yellowstone, NPS

Hey Friends! 

Some adorable black bears recently stopped by our cabin. We decided to keep our trail camera active for 3 months before changing the chip. And boy, did we capture some wildlife shenanigans! Kurt and I meticulously reviewed hours of trail camera footage and picked some of the best to share. Enjoy! 

Much Love,
Debra & Kurt Roinestad
