Save the bats!

At the Central Park (Schenectady, not New York City!) Earth Day gathering, there was a young lady who had a 'Save the Bats' table.  I was very happy to see it; bats around here are very misunderstood.  Anything that eats its own weight in mosquitoes every night is a friend of mine!  Sadly, local bats have been devastated by a fungal infection called White-nose syndrome.  The good news is that the caves that were first hit with this disease are starting to show some population recovery.

On a housekeeping note, I will be out of town for a few days and probably won't be posting new photos until I return.

  1. We love having two or three that patrol our yard at dusk! We look for them nearly every evening in the summer. I need to get a bat house!


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
