Other invertebrates eaten include spiders, crustaceans such as Isopoda, Amphipoda and crabs, annelid worms, Myriapoda, and small terrestrial, freshwater and marine mollusks. Vertebrate prey includes small fish, small frogs, tadpoles and small chameleons. Plant material is sometimes eaten, especially in the winter, and includes grass seeds, weed seeds, berries, grass blades, pine tree seeds, and tree buds; even young vegetables are reportedly eaten by the Australasian pipit. The olive-backed pipit feeds chiefly on insects in the summer and seeds in the winter. Some species occasionally take more unusual foods, including carrion, and the cape wagtail will forage around human habitation, eating raw meat, fat, cheese, maize meal, bread, and cake.

"In April 1862, Lieutenant Colonel George S. Evans led men from the Second Cavalry, California Volunteers into the Owens Valley to aid homesteaders and ranchers who were barely hanging on against attacks and ambushes by Paiute warriors. In the Fourth of July 1862, Col, Evans began the construction of a military post on Oak Creek in the heart of the valley. In honor of the day, he christened it Camp Independence. For the next several years companies of troopers from the Second Cavalry sallied forth from the camp to patrol the valley. During the spring and summer the action was frequent but usually of the skirmish variety, Each fall the Indians came in and made peace. They then lived off government rations until spring when they began their depredations again. There were dozens of skirmishes in the valley before Captain Moses A. McLaughlin developed a number of innovative tactics for dealing with the more than 500 Paiute warriors in the valley and the surrounding foothills."
(1454) Reports of great white shark encounters with humans have been abundant this summer, with a few harrowing incidents of sharks circling tourist and fishing boats yielding dramatic images.
(1457) Coniferous forest to plant-based, Akamatsu, black pine, black locust, oak Ma, Liu Ping was the dominant species, four distinct seasons, abundant rainfall, with summer holidays advantage.

(1728) In spring and summer the water from the Baltic is sufficiently abundant to inundate the whole surface of the Kattegat and Skagerrak, but in winter the sources of the Baltic current are for the most part dried up by the freezing of the land water.
(1754) The hot drought of 1893 extended over the spring and summer months, but there was an abundant rainfall in the autumn; correspondingly there was an unprecedentedly bad yield of corn and hay crops, but a moderately fair yield of the main root crops (turnips and swedes).
(1759) In summer, indeed, the vast expanse is little better than an arid steppe; but in the winter it furnishes abundant pasture to flocks of sheep from the Apennines and herds of silver-grey oxen and shaggy black horses, and sheep passing in the summer to the mountain pastures.
(1809) Of these three classes, and of other than purely zoological interest, are mosquitoes, which swarm in summer in the interior in vast numbers; sea fowl, which are remarkably abundant near the Aleutians; moose, and especially caribou, which in the past were very numerous in the interior and of extreme economic importance to the natives.
(1846) A peculiar feature is presented by the level upland basins which furnish abundant pasturage during the summer months; the more remarkable are the Omalo in the White Mountains (about 4000 ft.) drained by subterranean outlets (KaTa(30Opa), Nida (Eis T7)v IBav) in Psiloriti (between 5000 and 6000 ft.), and the Lassithi plain (about 3000 ft.), a more extensive area, on which are several villages.
(1873) I was surrounded by friends, my work was immense, and pleasures were abundant. Life, now, was unfolding before me, constantly and visibly, like the flowers of summer that drop fanlike petals on eternal soil. Overall, I was happiest to be alone; for it was then I was most aware of what I possessed. Free to look out over the rooftops of the city. Happy to be alone in the company of friends, the company of lovers and strangers. Everything, I decided, in this life, was pure pleasure.
Sometime in the fourties, the Poole Family (formerly millersto the Hon. George Wright at Belmont) went from here to Boston. From thence withmany others, they sailed in the ship Brooklyn around Cape Horn, arriving in SanFrancisco, California, in the summer on 1847. Tow years later, Peter Poole, oneof the number, in a letter to his brother in Charlottetown, told of the greatdiscovery of gold up in the hills; how that in eight days, in the mines, he hadmade eight hundred dollars; and advised him to come out. The letter was eagerlyread and re-read, making considerable stir in town and country.
The day and hour were set when we are to be towed out by thesteamer. Many of us said goodby to our friends. Masses have been said, and prayersoffered up in the churches for our safety..... This memorable afternoon (November12, 1849), is warm and clear as a summer day. Everything is solomn and impressive.The steamer towed us outside the harbour, and is about to return. Letters aregiven to be read when out at sea. Final farewells are made, and out friends taketheir departure by steamer for shore; that good man, John Bovyer, with others,to the last breathing out prayers for the safety of the people and vessel. Andnow, as I stand on the shore of the past, I cannot but think that their prayerswere answered. 041b061a72
