Well, the crickets were still singing last night. Wonder how long it will go on. I think it sounds most like the fall field cricket on this website.

The snowy cricket sounds lovely, I wish we had those.

Well, the rains have paused and the crickets were back last night. I wonder how long they will last. The sound of crickets is familiar to most of us, but what about the sound of a courting medfly. For some interesting insect noises, try this link:

I think of cricket songs as a summer event. But I have been noticing the last few years that they are definitely still singing in the fall. In fact, they were singing just a few days ago. But now that the rains have come, the songs are gone. It is sad, but we really need the rain, so i am welcoming fall.
