A new lifer.

Northern Camel-cart, a rare two-humped species. Favours forest edges. (Tick!)

My gosh, where do you find all these carts? Too funny!

Do you have the field guide?

Also, perhaps you should start collecting them for your garden:

Garden Lily, They are everywhere, once one's ear becomes attuned to the squeaky wheel.

Barefootheart, Those are great links. Thanks!. The field guide is impressive. I should have guessed someone would have come up with one--although the approach is somewhat different than a typical guide, based more on status than morphology. (And it includes urban strays too.)
