    I'm looking at the Brooks Falls cam right now and this one male, a good-sized one, has stubbornly situated himself where there no fish. Meanwhile, the salmon are trying to jump the falls right beside the near bank...

    This is not at all the "live: Bear cam" I was expecting. One-star thread.

    i watched for a few seconds and couldn't figure out what he was up to. it was almost like he was mesmerized by something.

    Earlier, the two half-grown males were behaving similarly. I don't understand it either. It's almost as if they don't "get it." I wonder if they were orphaned and not trained OTOH, they seldom make it to that size as orphans...

    I think some of them are just done eating, hyperphagia or not. I was watching the Brooks Falls cam just now and counted seven at once time, with their bellies just about dragging the water. One, near the camera, was in a side slough with numerous fish all around him, easy to see with their red backs, and he never made a move to catch one. He ambled over to a little island, dawdled, and then crossed over towards river left. Just wasn't interested...

    Barry, I don't know why they're showing this as live, but all the bears are hibernating until March, at least. Also, Brooks Lake, above the falls, is frozen and the falls are also, partially. Also, there are no salmon at this time of year...

    Also, note that all the deciduous vegetation around the banks is in nice mid-summer green...

    The cam is in "highlights" mode.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.
