The cicadas are here!  The first round of emergence is finally upon Staten Island.  These Magicicada septendecum were photographed this morning on the south shore… the best is yet to come!

Nymph magicicadas are starting to be commonly found under boards, logs and rocks around Staten Island.  Once the temps warm up just a little more, we will start seeing the adults!
