The cicada emergence has been mentioned a few times recently. One of my UConn colleagues, Chris Simon, is a world expert on the evolution of the group. Today she sent around this youtube clip, which she says has some of the best cicada footage she's ever seen:

Several members of her lab advised on the project.

Yeah, off-topic, but they're cool. And during the last big emergence in the region there was an incursion of Mississippi kites into the Northeast, so I'll claim there's a bird connection.
