Scrapbook -- April 4, 2011

I hear that cicadas are back. My children used to collect the shells they leave on tree trunks. The ones we are seeing now are a species that appears in 13-year intervals. They are probably best known for their buzzing and clicking noises. Their sound is one of the "summer sounds." The males make this noise with a "built-in drum."
