This is some kind of locust or grasshopper. I saw a few of these in the meadow. Their noise is louder than other grasshoppers, they are fatter and slower. It was funny to spot them because if you saw one and approched it, it would get quiet, and then just let go and fall....as if they just died on the spot....All three that I spotted just let go and fell...not fly away.
