I found this bug by ear, rather than by eye, on my window screen. He made this strange clicking noise that could be heard up the stairs and down the hallway in my house (I named him ”Clicker”) . The rate of the clicking would change (with no apparent patter) and would occasionally stop. He was a very vivid green color and could hop, almost resembling a grass hopper in that manner.

You new best friend is a Katydid in the family Tettigoniidae.  Your comparison of this Katydid to a Grasshopper is relevant since both are classified in the insect order Orthoptera.
