filling out forms or filling them in?

One sound of summer that I identify purely with summer is the cicada's song. The reason I identify this sound with summer is that I only ever hear it on the hottest days of the summer.

I have no idea what these cicadas do during the other three seasons.

Dictionary.com provides two distinct pronounciation keys for cicada:
si-key-duh
si-kah-duh

I use the first, what do you use?
