Bear cam revisited

Several hours ago I took a quick peek at the Brooks Falls webcam in Alaska, the one I mentioned about a week ago. Didn’t see a lot of leaping salmon this time, but I did catch a couple of bears …

  1. Damn! I saw this and got in quick. I thought it said BEER cam 😦

  2. I just visited at 1:00 PM CST… Not a single soul around! 🙂

    • Pretty amazing, isn’t it? I suppose once the salmon run is over, it will calm down quite a bit. But I’m sure enjoying it for now.

    • Yikes, hope I didn’t jinx it. I just looked — 8 am MST — and there’s not a bear in sight. Some salmon still jumping, and a bunch of ducks (?) trying to swim upstream, but no bears.

      Just followed a link and found a page that shows several different camera views, including the above, and shows the local time and temperature when you first land there.

      • I was looking at the cam yesterday morning which would have been about 3:30 am at the falls and could actually make out the image of a bear standing in the water just below the falls. I was quite surprised. I didn’t realize they would feed on Salmon at night which would indicate they have excellent night vision.

  3. If I were a salmon, I wouldn’t be jumping in the middle of that hungry bunch either.

  4. I just grabbed this screenshot. Unbelievable the number of salmon in the air at any one time. They must have queues waiting for a chance to jump the falls. This was going non-stop.

  5. Your proximity to so many ursinites can only be a good omen. I’m happy for you; they are majestic creatures in a way.

  6. In case you didn’t catch it, your bears made the national news last night. Bear cam video showed three cubs being swept over the falls. The mother, who was stalking fish at the time sees what’s happening, makes her way down the falls and downstream and rescues the three cubs from the water. Pretty cool… 🙂
