Katydids

Tettigonia virdissima nymph on Phleum pratense

I went outside this evening and the katydids were so loud, I decided to record them and to post them.  Even on normal years, when I go outside, they’re loud enough that I wonder sometimes how loud I need to call the cats so they can hear me over the katydids!  This year they seem louder than ever and they seem to keep getting louder....

When you listen to the recording, the katydids sort of sounds like white noise, but then you hear them rising and falling.  …
