Crickets.

Another shoot up at Harriman today--a second batch of footage based on stridulation in crickets, katydids and grasshoppers. The forest was full of cicada songs; we saw a pileated woodpecker hopping up a tree; we saw an incredibly hairy orbweaver (maybe Neoscona crucifera?)--Eric got a great photo; and we were swooped by a family of buzzards when we reached the top of a rocky peak. Also, I picked up an enormously fat toad who peed buckets on me... so I put him down.
