A hatch starting at about 8:45 p.m. CT Sunday was so prolific that it created a bow echo on radar, similar to one that would be made in a significant rainstorm, according to the La Crosse, Wis., office of the National Weather Service.  ...

In the air they become a feast for frogs, birds, spiders and other insects. Weather forecasters say Sunday's hatch was the Hexagenia bilineata species, one of the larger varieties.
