A thirsty bear, a stream that goes underground right in front of my camera, cold air drainage, cool gravel and sand and I end up with these clips.

The way that Bear saunters over to that creek and flops himself down for a drink is priceless. Great vids David, as usual.

He seems an unusual color. Is that normal for your area? I enjoyed the videos very much.

I see many different color phases here. It is as common in this area to see a cinnamon, blonde, mottled, and blonde hump bear as it is a black phase black bear.

This is probably the most interesting bear I've photographed with a trail camera.

That certainly is an unusual and beautiful coloration. :awesome With that coloration and the way it's shoulders look when it's head is down, some people would think it's a grizzly.

Yes, some people might mistake a bear like this for a grizzly but the bone structure of the face is completely different between a grizzly and black bear. This is obviously a black bear. I've seen both grizzlies and black bears up close, many times since I was a kid.

Typically when someone sees a black bear and "thinks" it's a grizzly, it's a black bear. When they see a grizzly and fill their shorts, there is no doubt it's a grizzly. Nobody sees a grizzly and thinks, hmmm, I wonder if that's a black bear. LOL

Very cool "bear cooling" behavior captured on vid! Great shot of a black bear that has the "grizz" look and thanks for the correct ID and rationale.
