I went “cicada hunting” today and found just a small patch of Brood XIII Cicadas at Sugar River Alder Forest Preserve. We are not giving up though! We will go again tomorrow to find those hungry birds!
The Lake County Forest Preserve has an Interactive 17-year Cicada Emergence Map showing where they are being found. There is a feature to send them your sightings so they can predict where they will be in 2024 as well.
