Southeast Missouri in 1989 and 2002
Date: Thursday, Mar/21/2002
Message: The brood maps show a 13-year brood (XXIII?) for 1989, 2002, etc, with a range that includes parts of southeast Missouri. I’m planning a short vacation in southeast MO in late May and hope to see/hear them. Would be nice to hear periodicals before the “main” MO brood returns in 2011. Does anyone remember hearing this brood in 1989 and where they heard them? Are they widely distributed within their range and is their density high? I was thinking of trying heavily-forested areas such as Trail of Tears and Big Oak Tree state parks. Thanks in advance for any info about this brood. — Eric, Missouri

Message: I’m sure you knew at the time that my photograph of a freshly hatched tibicen (Thanks for genus id, Les Daniels)was the winner of the Cicada art contest. I am not credited with the photograph (as far as I can see) in the Gallery. I would appreciate having my name added to the photo. Pete — Pete Dickson, Cincinnati, OH
Australian Cicada Sounds
Date: Saturday, Mar/9/2002
Message: I’m from Sydney, Australia, but I haven’t been home in years. I was just watching a documentary on my old home town, when they played a few seconds of cicada sounds. The memories came flooding back: Catching cicadas, their eternal summer song. I’m a pretty tough, beefy guy, but I swear I misted up. If anyone knows where I can download the sounds of some true-blue australian cicadas, well I’d be in their debt.kieran_mccabe [AT] excite.com — kieran_mccabe [AT] excite.com, London, UK
