Bears are not true hibernators? A true hibernator, like a chipmunk, enters a state of hibernation and then will not wake until their biological clock tells them to, regardless of external stimuli. Bears do not hibernate. Instead, they enter a state of torpor.
To celebrate the Heron Observation Network's fifth year, I put together a collection of Photos from the Field, taken by myself, co-workers, and some very talented HERON volunteers. Many THANKS to all the HERON volunteers who monitored colonies, and to the landowners that allowed access. Here's to another exciting year ahead of us! Happy 2014!
