My online field guide to the crickets and katydids of NE Ohio is now available! There are species accounts for all our regional singers from Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Portage, Summit, Medina, and Lorain Counties. Each is illustrated with my own field recordings, sonograms, and photos. It's at Listeningtoinsects.com

You can also learn about how, when and where to listen, how the insects create their songs, where they live, what they eat, and much more education information.

Less common species also have links to Google maps showing where I've found them to date. Each species account also has links to other resources with additional information about them.

Because it's an online resource., I'll be able to update as we learn more about these beautiful singers. It's currently formatted for desktop/laptop/tablet view, and I'll modify for mobile view after the conclusion of the 2018 field season.
