That was an informative and exceptional film!  Thanks so much for sharing.  Do 
you or other readers know any locations in CT where this is occurring, or 
expected to occur?

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.
