What bug is this? It looks like a Cheerio, but it's medium dark brown,
and the circle isn't quite complete.
A robin has been eating a lot of them in my yard, right after I mowed it
(the yard, not the robin).
I was able to get the running electic lawnmower** to within 6 feet of
the robin, before it hopped away. Then it went on the other side of
the lawnmower to another part I'd just mown. I guess the larvae were
up in the grass and didnt' have time to hide in the 5 minutes since I
mowed that part of the lawn.
I thought it was a grub too, and I looked up grub and it didn't look
anything like it.
I think I have to look up "grub worm".
Okay, looked at in in Images. Wow, it's as long as a man's 3 milddle
fingers are wide. Much bigger, longer and fatter, than a cheerio.
But the point is still made. it's the larva of something.
