Maritime Grasshopper Group


Maritime Grasshopper Group

A nature discussion group for all things grasshopper and other orthopteroid insects. Please feel free to post all your grasshopper and allies (katydid, cricket, roach, earwig, preying mantis, etc.) discussions here. While many previous discussions for this group have been posted under "Beetles n Bugs for Birders" in the past, I thought there might be a place for this more specialized group this year. Time will tell if I made the right choice. Perhaps we can do the same for other insect groups at some point.
