Weekend with little time for wildlife!
I had a fun and interesting weekend but the only wildlife I encountered was a Deer Mouse left by my cats in the middle of the living room floor. I will expect Lazy (the hunter cat) to continue her fun while these little fuzzy moving toys of hers try to make their home in this house (due to the weather getting colder). Phoebe (my overweight cat) might miss 90% of the visits of these mice due to sleeping upstairs in “her” chair. You can be sure that Lazy will try to change the mice’s minds that outside might be a better place to live! Meanwhile, I will try to continue to live trap them in the basement and take them a distance away to avoid my cats. I found this to be a better way to observe these mice up close.
I had expected last Friday to be an excellent owl night but we had unexpected mixed snow (which made it impossible for me to open nets). Last night I didn’t open the nets due to attended my cousins wedding (which was wonderful seeing family and some old friends). I can now focus my evenings on owls till mid November but that’s only if the weather could be equally cooperative! Of course tonight has scattered showers that has appeared to only been scattered only over the park with every cloud that passes. I guess that is what I get living in the snow belt. Going to bed early tonight with hope that a rainless nights might happen in the very near future!
