This bear is estimated at 100 lbs and was later spotted at other bird feeders a couple of miles from my place.
I took these photos from my house through a window and screen; safety comes first!
I'm in Southern Maine where we don't generally get a glimpse of these elusive creatures - except at the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray, so it was a rare treat to see one out my window! Note: the bird seed was put away for a few weeks so no more free food to encourage him to stick around.
Here's my design inspired by the neighborhood bear

More to come....I'll add the video later - it was not loading correctly
