Excerpt from WE
Lily is a wild hibernating female black bear who researchers have predicted will have cubs in the next two weeks. A LIVE bear cub birth has never before been filmed, so don't miss it. Be right there with Lily as she goes through this amazing experience.
Lily is part of a long-term study of black bear ecology and behavior being conducted by the North American Bear Center (www.bear.org) and the Wildlife Research Institute (www.bearstudy.org) near Ely, Minnesota.

Can see Lily breathing but can't decide which direction she's laying. She may have her back to the camera.

I have watched carefully - and I can see her breathing - but is she exposed to the elements there??
What time is it there - and I will post the viewing time!

I think Minnesota is on Central time, so two hours later than nest time. It's 10:10 pacific time now, so 12:10 central time (and 1:10 eastern time where I am - which means my lunch break is over - bye!)

12:24 den time. I agree, it is very challenging to orient the position of the bear, from the rise and fall of her fur!!!
I am still trying to understand how the cam is oriented into the den.....seems its outside, looking in as we also see the snow falling on her. it is indeed fascinating!!!

I did read somewhere that the den is very shallow. It's under a few fallen logs or a small crevice that she dug into the dirt. The cam is hanging just on the outside of the den. If I can find that information I'll post it here.

Lily from when she was awake this morning, a nice big yawn. She even put her nose right up. Soon as I figure out pics I'll put them in to the cam
