It could ruin the local wine industry as it attacks vineyards.  :(

Good Evening Beakers

Mama and I made it to my house about an hour ago.  We had stopped at Bradley's on the way home to see him and Kelly, and then we decided to take them out to lunch, as there was a 12 mile back up at the bridge.   :o 

I am so tired, and getting ready to get in bed.

See you all tomorrow!!  Missed you all!

PEEPS   I like the name Happy  :)    I wonder where the lantern bug originated?   GINGER's article had the answer - native to China

T40   " rare"  LOL  All of those were great.  Hubby even watched and got a good laugh.  Dolphin and cat - impressive

Waving to All the Beakers!  :)

Lisa, glad you and your Mom are safe at home for the night. Sleep, sleep, sleep.  :)

The Spotted Lanternfly was confirmed in NC this past June. Agriculturally, the threat is primarily to grapevine, where "up to 90% yield reduction ... is documented." Article from the NC State University Forestry Extension about it is:
https://forestry.ces.ncsu.edu/2022/06/spotted-lanternfly-confirmed-in-north-carolina/
Check out the "You Might Also Like" list of related articles at the end of the one above, for more info.


Meanwhile, I'm taking my daily headache companion, now dubbed, HAL (HeadAcheLol), to bed soon. It's alias is, PITTS (PainInTheTuchuS).


G'night Beakers. Sleep well. SED.

Yes, that's 909's yearling cub catching a salmon! Even 909 looks impressed. via twitter explore.org

Lori - I've been checking back at Brooks Falls to see if any news was posted about female 39 (?) and her coys.  Nothing being added.  Did they find anyone or anythings?
P
sorry puff i just saw this. Will keep reading for updates! ;) say hi to Ashley from Destini 💜

Brooks Falls Brown Bears Katmai National Park, Alaska

39 with her 2 spring cubs at the falls July 8, 2022

Puff and all here's all I found so far...   Prayers for 39 and her 2 cubs.  Here is her "fandom" page too, updated often https://katmai-bearcams.fandom.com/wiki/039

The July 8th "Bears seen" report indicates
 "unfortunately 39 and the cubs got separated in an altercation with 856; a report from a visitor on the platform said that both cubs were fine, but no one saw whether the family was reunited, and we are waiting on reports from rangers to verify this information"

The following info is posted on the bear cam updates page from July 20, 2022
https://katmai-bearcams.fandom.com/wiki/2022_Deceased_Spring_Cub_Discovered_July_20,_2022

 Via Ranger Lian Law
"Today, we bring you news of some of the harsh realities of a bear’s life. Yesterday (07/20/2022), we received a report of a deceased spring cub. We realize that this is an emotional event for many people and want to keep you as informed as possible.
This is what we know:
• We received the report around 4pm yesterday about a dead cub at the island in the river in front of the tree stand/cut bank. This area is located about halfway between Brooks Falls and the lower Brooks River and is not visible on the cams. It is downstream of the falls cam's line of sight.
• Rangers collected the body shortly after and our intent is to send it to the state for a necropsy.
• Rangers were unable to complete a full field necropsy because of bears in the vicinity and plan to wait for more information from the full necropsy (we do not have a timeline on when we will have the results).
• No one witnessed what happened.
This is what we don’t know:
• At this time, we don’t know which mother bear the cub might belong to
• The circumstances that led to the death
Despite our large population of brown bears, it is rare for us to find the remains. Bears face all sorts of risks in life and cubs especially face numerous challenges. Cub mortality is highest of all bear classes, especially in their first year.

Part of the reason we intend to do a necropsy is because of the history of CAV-1 here. CAV-1 is a canine adenovirus, an infection also found in cats, dogs, and wolves. (Learn more about the death of a bear at Katmai in 2015 that likely resulted from infectious canine hepatitis). In addition, the results will also help us better understand the causes of death in our population. Despite how much we know about bears, there is still so much we don’t know, including about bear mortality.
Katmai National Park is a unique place where can witness bears as they live out their wild and natural lives, that includes moments of challenge, growth, competition, and some of the harsher realities like death which is often a very emotional moment.
We will do our best to keep you informed."


On July 21, 2022 Ranger Chris answered some Q's as well on the bear cam comments page:
bshortt-Virginia's question: "Could 39s cub have survived this long without milk or food. Wondering if it was hers and starved to death. How long has it been since 856 attacked?"

Mike Fitz' 12:38 reply: "The incident between 39 and 856 happened 13 days ago. Spring cubs remain highly reliant on mother's milk at this time of year but they are about at the age when they can survive without it. Importantly, we've seen several bear families with first year cubs this summer. Since the cub was found well downriver of the falls and just recently, then the cub could be from any of those families."

Ranger Chris' 07/21/22 reply to Birgitt re: which sow the cub belongs to, was 94 seen w/4 cubs
 "It is possible that the cub in the tree could belong to any number of sows. We have not had a report of any lone cubs since last week. While it is possible that the cub did belong to 39, we will never know. As of this morning, we've had a report of 94 with all four coys."

and finally...
We will probably never be able to confirm if the deceased spring cub that was discovered on July 20, 2022 was one of 39's spring cubs.

Good Morning Beakers! Good morning Lani!



We had the Munchkins until around 11:30 last night, and do you think they even acted sleepy? Ha! They usually are in bed by 8:00 or 8:30! They brought their jammies and I am sure both were sound asleep when they got home! The kids went to the Fair and a concert.
 

Lani, cute goodnight picture!  Hope Mike is rested up and that your new internet company is making things better! Wow, I looked at the 15 day forecast on TWC, looks like there is a 58% chance of scattered thunderstorms everyday for Payson! Hoping you get what you need to keep those fires away...

Phyl, big crowd on the flyway this morning!  Darling picture of the little boy and his cat fishing! Today we are only getting to 81. 76 for tomorrow and a whole teo weeks of no temps over 84! It will be so nice! And possibly some rain tomorrow and Tuesday!

Lori, you love researching, I can tell!  It's always been something I love too. Thanks for the information on the bears, it's hard not knowing what happened but we should be used to that by now, we have been through plenty with all the cams...

baz, I hope you were able to get rid of HAL, who is the PITTS!

Peeps, that is the most beautiful sunset yet!

Saw this on FB and you know who I thought of!  willie! We miss you!
