Cicada and Katydid - Identification by Sound
Q: Some of my friends say the loud chorus of chirping sounds at night is tree frogs and others say it is cicadas. Do you know?
A: I think you were hearing annual cicadas and katydids singing in the treetops.. There are several cicadas in the genus Tibicen rasping away in the trees now.

You probably were hearing a mix of Tibicen pruinosus, Tibicen linnei, Tibicen tibicen and Tibicen canucularis. Both katydids and cicadas make sound by rapidly flexing or rubbing parts of their bodies.
