Birding the Bear Mountain of Serbia
JULY 2, 2020
A narrow forest road takes us to the chain blocking the entrance, with a sign “Area closed – bear danger”. This feeding station is not here for the tourists: in order to lower the bee-hive raiding (even the Serbian word for a bear, medved, comes from the word honey – med), supplementary feeding was offered to local bears for several decades. I am on a mission to finally see my first Brown Bear and everything else becomes secondary.
