Cricket song

Field crickets are singing loudly tonight, clearly in great numbers based on the volume. I can't say it's melodious, since it's basically one call over and over. But it's remarkably loud, and it fills the night, so we're surrounded with warm humid air and the shu-shu two note calls, over and over. It's the sound of southern summer nights in the Eastern U.S.

  1. We are finally getting some rain today, hope it is enough to measure. After the rain we will have lots of crickets singing.

  2. All you need now is a babbling brook.

  3. I'm afraid creating a stream is beyond our budget! But we'd love to have a small pool....

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
