Updated Singing Insects Guide

by Carl Strang

The 2020 version of my guide to the Singing Insects of the Chicago Region is out now.

There continue to be significant changes each year, the biggest one this time being the replacement of county maps with site maps for each species. As presented in previous blog posts, other changes include expanded information on Cuban and variegated ground crickets, nimble meadow katydids, and the addition of a page for the tropical house cricket.

The guide is available for free as a condensed 5.5mb pdf document. If you are not already on the mailing list, send an e-mail with your request to me at wildlifer@aol.com

      Thanks for your interest, John. It is not posted, too big a document. I will add your e-mail address and send it as an attachment.
