This iReport is part of an assignment:
Sights and sounds of the 17-year cicadas
Cicadas In Virginia-Listen To Them Go
VIEW ON A MAP -- Open Story: Abuzz about cicadas
- nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
After posting a picture of the Cicadas to iReport I realized that it's difficult to convey the noise level. I decided to create a short video with audio samples. One thing I quickly discovered is that these guys like to hang out in population centers. First I stopped by a local National Wildlife Refuge. I figured i'd hit the jackpot in terms of footage but I didn't even see one. Next I remembered hearing them near a Virginia Rail Express stop so I headed over to grab a little video.
