Zenaida macroura

(Print trays make good bird baths, edges are easily gripped.) It (the dove) is also a leading gamebird, with more than 20 million birds (up to 70 million in some years) shot annually in the U.S., both for sport and for meat. Its ability to sustain its population under such pressure is due to its prolific breeding; in warm areas, one pair may raise up to six broods of two young each in a single year.–Wikipedia

Big Pharmacy

foo house
September 13, great discussion by the entrance corridor review board regarding proposed big box pharmacy which desires to locate at 1170 Emmett Street (southeast corner of the Barracks/Rt 29 intersection). The ERCB made comments based on the entrance corridor design guidelines and deferred the matter in hopes that the applicant will return with a plan that will complement the community.

Arilus cristatus

The reproductive cycle of the wheel bug initiates in autumn. When a pair of wheel bugs encounter each other and have coitus, the female will lay 40-200 small, brown, cylindrical eggs on a tree twig, and eventually die. The eggs will hatch in the next spring into eighth millimeter long red nymphs, which will undergo 5 molts until they reach the adult stage the following summer.
They are predators upon soft-bodied insects such as caterpillars, Japanese beetles, etc., which they pierce with their beak to inject salivary fluids that dissolve soft tissue. Because most of their prey are pests, wheel bugs are considered as beneficial to the garden as ladybugs. They are also known for eating stinkbugs.-Wikipedia
