I love the sound of crickets at night, making their mating calls! I believe it’s only the males that make the sounds.
Near where I live is a large field with a lot of crickets! At night (and even at times in the day) they make a lot of what some might call “racket” but I call music to my ears.
Did you know you can tell the temperature outside by counting the frequency of the cricket’s chirps and a little math? It’s true! This is how you do it, and I’ve tried it and it works: http://www.almanac.com/cricket-chirps-temperature-thermometer
Here is a video I recently made of the crickets nearby at night:
