Rain Birds

Recommended Posts

I always thought the rain birds were just the local variety of cicada that usually sing and breed weeks before the rains come.  Sometimes I have surprised them singing ferociously up on my mirador, the guys I have seen were definately cicadas.  A katydid is much more closely related to the grasshopper and don't sing quite like the the high shrilling cicadas.  And yes, they have singing in Chapala now for over a week or so.
