I recorded this sound taking a walk at approximately 10:15 pm, Wednesday, September 18, 2013. These insect sounds were coming from a very tall, thick patch of grass near a culvert/drainage area by the sidewalk. Likely there are multiple species present in the recording.

About

This is a pilot for what we hope will become a coordinated effort to document the distribution of calling insects using recordings as primary vouchers. The emphasis will be on collecting records at the county level, but there is no reason that multiple records at much smaller scales can't be recorded for parks, refuges, and personal projects.
