What is the very loud insect that goes “eh-eh-eh ee-ee-ee eh-eh-eh”? I heard it so often in the late summers growing up in southwestern Connecticut.
Could be a katydid if you hear them at night.
I saw a photo today, supposedly a cicadia, but it had white rings around its eyes; looked like an alien.
