Tibicen linnei Calling Song

Tibicen linnei calling song

My friend Mike Neckermann sent in this short video of some T. linnei calling in Connecticut. It's really amazing how these guys sound like those Spanish Maracas. See if you agree. Click the thumbnail below to launch the 42 second movie. Tibicen linnei can only be found in certain areas in Connecticut as they are not as wide-spread as say Tibicen lyricen or Tibicen canicularis which are the two most common varieties we have here in New England. This video was taken around the Portsmouth Connecticut area where Mike works.
