Website organization:

how to find what's interesting to you

Short-winged Meadow Katydid

Welcome, everyone!

Here’s a listing of everything currently planned for the website. I’ll make updates as needed and will be able to add additional topics over time. You'll find recordings as well as photos on most of these pages.

Start with the horizontal menu bar at the top of every page on the website. You can access all these topics from there.

​Under the primary heading, there will be a drop-down menu of all the subfolders. You can click on the one you want and go directly there from the menu bar (but NOT from the table of contents list below, which is simply an  illustration of what's available here.).

This website is currently designed for desktop, though it should look fine on tablets as well. I may need to make adaptations for mobile, but that won't happen until after the upcoming singing insect field season.
