As we have been seeing for over two months, bear activity in the Berkshires seems to be at a whole new level. Berkshire County residents are regularly taking video of the bear sightings in their yards and sharing them with the internet. The bears must have been well protected over the years because it really seems like there's a surge of sightings in 2021. We've even seen social media comments of people saying that years ago they never saw a bear in the Berkshires but now they're seeing them on a regular basis.

Since we were able to share a bundle of videos over the span of two plus months, we thought it would be a fun idea to give you a compilation of all of the videos in one spot... right here, right now...a greatest hits if you will. So, below are the videos of bear activity that we have shared up to this point in Berkshire County and nearby Berkshire County.

In the above video, this big guy was picked up on camera back in April in the early morning hours in Florida, MA.

This trio of mama and her two cubs heading for the doorway was captured on video in May in the Town of New Marlborough and was originally shared by a member of the New Marlborough Photo Page Facebook group.

This video taken back in May and originally shared by a member of the The Berkshires Facebook group, features a beautiful mama and her adorable cub roaming around perhaps looking to find a meal without a care in the world.

Originally shared by a member of The Berkshires Facebook group, this big bear was captured on video back in May in a residential neighborhood on Morningview drive in Pittsfield.

Taken in the Lenoxdale area, this video is downright adorable as the mama and her three cubs look like they're in a parade. Fun stuff. The video was originally shared in The Berkshires Facebook group.

This video was originally shared by a member of the Southern Berkshire Community News, Information and Events Facebook group in June and this bubby is roaming around. Definitely not shy to approach the deck.

Though this video isn't from the Berkshires, we figured we would include it as a bonus. The video was shot in Huntington in Hampshire County and features three bears jumping off a rock wall and trotting across a residential driveway. Another fun video which was originally shared by a member of the What's Up in the Hilltowns Facebook group.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
