Know your Crickets (and Katydids)!

NPR had a cool story yesterday on a project to document the insects of New York City. Much of the story focused on identifying night-singing crickets and katydids by their songs (7 examples here). Very cool stuff, though I'd love to hear a companion story on frogs and whatever else is out there. I spent many summer nights falling asleep to that wooded cacophony - it'd be pretty cool to recognize some of the participants!
