Anyone familar with the term “August Dry Birds”? William M wrote to say to he knew a farmer in Vermont who called cicadas that. I’ve heard of “locusts” and “harvest fly” before, but “August Dry Birds” is new to me.
Some news article found by Roy:
I went hiking last weekend in New Jersey’s Atlantic Highlands (yes, New Jersey has trees and wildlife) and I heard plenty of Tibicen cicadas, but I think we’re close to the end of the season. Anyone else still hearing Tibicens?
