Take a walk outside any balmy late summer evening and listen to Nature's insect symphony -- a nightly orchestration by the 30-40 species of crickets and katydids that call our forests and fields and lawns home. Wil Hershberg is a cricket and katydid fanatic -- and connoisseur listener. Armed with microphones and headsets and recorders, Wil takes to the night to record their songs, and has compiled over 50 chorus and species samples on CD. The CD is now being used as a resource to teach volunteers how to identify different cricket and katydid species songs for a new joint research effort by scientists to document Mid-Atlantic cricket and katydid species.
