Beetle Fest! (The Bug Kind)

What's up with all the black beetles? They were everywhere around the Boyne area woods I was in Saturday! I've never seen so many! There were literally hundreds of them scurrying all over the leaves on the forest floor, scurrying into holes, and crawling on logs. At first I thought maybe it was the vibrations I was making that was driving them out of the ground, but even when I was stationary for a long time, they kept scurrying everywhere. Anybody else notice them?

I haven't seen them. However, you can't walk through the woods around here without hearing the tent caterpillar droppings hitting the leaves.

Anyone willing to snap a pic and post it over in the appropriate forum? I'd like to figure this out. (entomolgy minor back in the day...)
