The temps were down today but it was sunny so I worked outside much of the day. Icy fog this morning but still wonderful first light and sunrise. Some additional bluebird/tree swallow nest boxes arrived last night after dark and also an insulated shelter for my feral black cat. I hope he/she finds it and uses it this winter. I'm sure it's the same cat from last winter. I also had a ginger tabby which I have not seen for a long time. My thinking? Cats catch and eat rodents which carry the same ticks that deer carry. Those ticks carry Lyme disease (as well as some other horrific diseases) and even though cases of Lyme in this part of Michigan are very rare, they won't be for long - probably.
