The rhinoceros beetle also gets moniker'd "Hercules beetle." National Wildlife Federation says, 'Tkdults of some species can lift objects 850 times their weight! That would be equivalent to a human lifting nine fully grown male elephants!" Research took me back to "The Dirt Doctor's" website, to the exact paragraph I found 11 months ago when we found gigantic grubs that looked like June bugs on steroids. Those grubs are the larval form of the rhinoceros beetle. Oh my! These interesting finds in Mountain City! Melissa Garraway mentioned an abundance of frogs (not toads) this year. Below our stacked-boulders bird fountain, RonTom just about always finds flogs in the catch basin water. That native-plant surrounded fountain drew birds this past week throughout the scorching days: Northern cardinal, eastern bluebird, lesser goldfinch, American goldfinch, ladder-back woodpecker, golden- fronted woodpecker, American robin (including a juvenile with a speckled breast), summer tanager, orchard oriole, Bewick's wren, white-winged dove, Inca dove, mourning dove, mockingbird, blue jay. I cannot remember them all. And, unfortunately, house sparrows. I almost forgot! The fountain drew the long- awaited yellow-billed cuckoo on August 11!

The San Marcos Police Department is the latest agency to join the SafeTrade program. The program provides Painted buntings like this Mountain City. one are PHOTO BY PAULINE TOM still being spotted around two. well lit spaces in the police department's parking lot, and the use of the police department lobby as safe places to meet online buyers or sellers to conduct a transaction. Both locations are monitored by surveillance cameras." In addition to Craigslist type exchanges, child custody exchanges can also be done in the safe zone." The safe zone for tree limb pick up is near the street, not on the street. Limbs must be out by Sunday, August 30, so they get included in a bid from tree limb picker- uppers. The process takes a while. I pick up tidbits from and 512-268-5678. Please leave some soon. Thanks! Love, Pauline.
