Periodical Cicadas

Over the last couple of weeks, a bunch of us have been delighted by unexpected encounters with periodical cicadas in the DC area. Apparently, these are Brood X stragglers coming out 4 years ahead of schedule, oops! WaPo had a story about this today.

The folks at need your help in documenting this phenomenon in as much detail as possible. So please, record every black, red-eyed cicada you see in the next few weeks here on iNat. For extra karma credits, you can also go and fill out one of the data sheets:

Tagging DC area naturalists active during the last couple of months. Happy cicada hunting!
