There are only black bears on Vancouver Island, but one must be when hiking.

BC's Provincial BirdWe have more than a dozen Steller's Jays keeping us company all year. The Jay's don't go south in the winter. They love peanuts in the shell and the bold ones will take them out of your hand. If the cabin door is left open some will come in and steal out of the
peanut bucket.
