First Neocicada hieroglyphica of the Season in Florida

Filed under: Joe Green | Neocicada | Video — Tags: — Dan @ 4:45 am

Joe Green wrote us to let us know that he heard the first Neocicada hieroglyphica of the year.

Just wanted to let you all know I heard the first male Neocicada hieroglyphica calling from a oak tree today at Chico’s World Headquarters campus here in Fort Myers, Florida. I heard the warm-up pre call at first that lead into to the full blown chorus call for 6 repeated calls before he stopped. It was 2:40 pm EST, in the afternoon with the temperature reaching 80 degrees on this day. I have yet to hear one at Dusk here at the house but I’ll listen from now on with the start of the season here in south Florida and record all my data for this year’s research. I’ll keep in touch with all of you as the year proceeds.

New Cicada Videos from Joe Green

Filed under: Joe Green | Neocicada | Sounds | Video — Tags: — Dan @ 10:58 am

Joe Green sent me a couple of CDs worth of North American cicadas calling and has graciously allowed us to use them for the site. The highlight of these videos is that they feature cicada calls.

I have to add descriptions, and about 50 more videos, but for now check out what’s uploaded so far.

Here’s a sample:
