In 1921 Wayne Cartledge moved into the Army;s new buildings, using them for a trading post. As suggested by his business' name, La Harmonia Company, Cartledge worked to serve people from both sides of the border. He provided local families with necessary goods, while they provided labor for Cartledge's ranching and farming ventures. This place "so definitely marked for a military post" grew into the bi-cultural community known today as Castolon.

Amazing what Google can do.   :-)

Hindsight is 20/20. I stared at your question for ten minutes without success until I read Jim's post.

I was leaning toward “accipitral” (‘natch) but I was wasn’t going to commit until I could pull up the Christmas Bird Count records for Castolon.
