Cricket songs

The last of the field crickets are singing now, until frost stills them. I don't know which species they are -- I know we have several fall crickets, but I'm far away from my 'area of expertise'!

Here's a link to a fall field cricket song from the University of Florida. The magic of digital.

I love the seasonal waxing and waning of the nocturnal symphony of insect songs (and frogs, and birds, too). The symphony is at its peak in summer.


  1. We have crickets with the same song but it is too cold for them now and they stopped singing in late September/early October. The band has disassembled until next season. :)

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
