A field excursion for singing insects took me back to Indiana on Friday. The sky was clear in the morning, with the temperature in the upper 50’s F, but conditions deteriorated back to October wind and clouds through the afternoon. As I drove back home I had the feeling that, except for noting last song dates for species I encounter while engaged in other activities, the 2014 field season is done. Nevertheless, I had picked up another 6 county records, bringing the year’s total to 101.
