Cicadas Sounds & Pictures?

Millions of periodical cicadas started emerging from the ground in Middle Tennessee this weekend.

Some people are already griping over cicadas' omnipresent “eerie” sounds and discarded husks.

Cicadas are loud, they’re ugly and for the next four to five weeks, they’ll be all over the place.
My mom is abroad and when I told her about the cicadas she said she didn't remember how they sound. Is there a website with sounds and pictures of the cicadas?

Cicadas were last seen in 1998 when as many as 1.5 million could be found swarming a single acre.

Cicadas are perhaps the noisiest of all the insects. Actually the sounds are the mating calls of the males; most female cicadas are silent.
Most of the periodical cicadas you’ll see have red or reddish-orange eyes. A very small number, however, have white, blue, or yellow eyes.

You can hear the sounds cicadas emit in this video.


And this is a picture of a common cicada insect.
