Was up in Western MD over the weekend. The mountain behind my mom's house sounded something from an old sci-fi movie. My nephew measured the frequency of the "chirping" multiple times. Each time it centered up on 5993 Hz.

Interesting. The cicadas were out in force this morning in East Tall Timbers. I had thought I had been hearing one here and there before. No mistaking it this morning.

If you find a dead cicada on the ground, note its color.
It seems that “Brood X”, the 17-year brood, had orange color “trim”.
The normal ones, that come out regularly, have green “trim”. I just found one next to my house, and it was green. We did not get a single orange one, while PG was covered in them a month ago.

Do they have the red LED headlights?
