Glacier National Park in Montana has several webcams set up in important places. One is focused on a cottonwood tree that black bears use as a den, so that we can see them as they slowly emerge from winter hibernation. One webcam is focused on a large hole that bears occasionally stick their heads out of. Another webcam is further back, so you can see how far up the tree that hole is. The images refresh every minute or so. If you don't see a bear when you check it, the park's Twitter feed will have sightings.
Yawn! Do you ever struggle to get out of bed? This black bear has been sluggishly poking its head since March 23rd. You can watch it emerge from hibernation live on our new temporary webcam here: https://t.co/vrfiP1oa4v pic.twitter.com/40LnBfT6dC— GlacierNationalPark (@GlacierNPS) March 29, 2018
