Mr. Bugman, I was referred to you when I asked my FB friends what this beetle is.
It was jumping around in my window sill here in Milwaukee, WI today (June 27, 2011).

Scooped Scarab

Hi Ryan,
Not all Scarab Beetles with horns are Rhinoceros Beetles.  Your beetle is a Scooped Scarab,
Onthophagus hecate, one of the Dung Beetles.  According to BugGuide, the Scooped Scarab feeds on dung, rotting fruit and carrion.
