Emergence Report

Filed under: Brood XIII | Magicicada — Dan @ 4:14 am

So far we have Bull Valley, a possible in Lake Bluff, and Highland Park

If you see cicadas don’t forget to take photos. Put them up on Flickr, the free photo sharing service, and use the broodxiii tag so others can find your Brood XIII cicadas. If you can, take a picture of a cicada with a newspaper or print out this web page and take a picture of the cicadas with that (for date reference).

Don’t forget to take video too, and put that video up on YouTube!

Here’s what it looks like when you print it out:
