I’ve been meaning to ask the list about this. My bird seed and suet have
been moving much slower lately and I wondered if the birds are eating
cicadas instead. There have been a lot of cicadas here since late April.
The birds I've seen with cicadas so far (1 each) are Carolina wren,
cardinal and red-eyed vireo.

Hi -

I am looking for locations where large numbers of the Brood XIX Cicadas are
emerging, I would like to see whether any birds are feeding on them.
Places with both cicadas and Mississippi Kites would be awesome.
