Apparently the last one didn’t make it. All summer, my wife Cathy and I watched a pair of Swainson’s hawks raise their brood. From little balls of not-particularly-attractive fuzz, to squabbling nest mates, to gangly adolescents exercising their wings in a space that suddenly seemed far too small, we watched as the three youngsters grew.

I love bears and the wildlands where they live. Bears have fascinated me, scared me ‘til my heart pounded, and inspired me… They have helped me to learn about the diversity of life on earth and how nature works.
