Join us for an evening of listening for crickets and other singing insects! We will report our findings to the annual DC Cricket Crawl (check out this website, tons of good information on it)

If you would like to plan ahead, get familiar with the 8 cricket and katydid calls we will be listening for! Go to the website and read about the 8 species, listen to their calls and – bonus points!! – download the songs to your phone. This makes ID in the field much easier. I will bring data forms.

Lots of information about the songs of insects at Lang Elliot’s website songsofinsects.com

Let us know you are coming!
