Songs of Insects

Posted by Ron Wolford -

I was on the WGN radio web site checking out the latest happenings on Mike Nowak's Let's Talk Gardening Show and on his latest show he mentioned a book he received, The Songs of Insects by Lang Elliott and Wil Hershberger, published by Houghton Mifflin Company. The book has great photos of common species of crickets, katydids, locusts and cicadas and a CD of their chips, clicks, trills, rattles and buzzes.

The authors also have a new web site: Songs of Insects which has a section with the sounds of 77 species of insects
