Computer analysis of the twilight soundscape with the sounds of grasshoppers (Tettigoniidae) and crickets (Gryllidae) recorded in an agrocenosis of Eastern Bulgaria was performed. Seven species were identified by the dynamic spectrograms. It is shown that analysis of the group stridulation spectrograms of Ensifera can be useful not only for solving ecological and faunistic problems but also for studying the acoustic interactions of conspecific and heterospecific individuals in the same biotope.
