Spicer Lake is a St. Joseph County (Indiana) park and nature preserve close to the triple border of two Indiana counties and Michigan. It is not far from Springfield Fen, so after thanking Scott last week I headed up there to prospect for singing insects. Those proved to be relatively common species, but it was a beautiful site well worth visiting.
The most common singing insect along the boardwalk was the black-legged meadow katydid.
That visit closed the book on my out-of-state singing insect excursions for the year.
