Published July 2nd, 2012

These sibling bears really wanted the bird feeder.

I Really Want That Birdseed

There is a bird feeder about 15 ft up the tree, so Nakina gives it a little push to test it out.

Nakina attempts to climb the tree, to no avail.

Kobuk Gives it a Try

Kobuk is much taller than Nakina, and can almost reach the bird feeder.

Ah Ha

Kobuk decides to "bridge the gap".

Take 2

Alas, Kobuk can't pull it free, so he decides whether or not he can push the tree over.

Damn it

Kobuk searches for Nakina (who has lost interest) to see if she will help.
They do end up pushing the tree over and getting the bird feeder, but I shot video of that.
