    Hi Zafar, first thanks! Not many birds that day, the sky was overcast, it was cold and the deer ticks were out. It must have been too cold for most birds.

    Yeah, you don't want those suckers on you!! People walk on trails and it is rare to get them when you stay on the trails. There are things you should do if you know you will be in the brush; the basics are wear a hat (ticks can drop from the trees or tall grass), light color clothing, spray yourself with DEET or better Permethrin. When you get home take all your cloth off in the garage and wash them right away then check yourself. If you discover that you have one, get it off then go see a Dr. within the first 72 hours. They will give you a couple of antibiotic pills as prevention, etc. Now, this is what the professionals are saying: http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/communicable/tickborne/TickPrevCtrl.htm This is what you should buy to repel ticks: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sawyer-Premium-Permethrin-Clothing-Insect-Repellent-Trigger-Spray-24-oz/20689970
