One lonely bat came back....

A few weeks ago. the neighbors bat house ( which the bats all LOVED!) fell apart. Maybe it was the weather or the design. but it cracked right in two. So I moved an unoccupied bat House over to that same tree. I'm thinking it was the tree the bats loved with its central location rather than the house itself. Well it took a few weeks for them to warm up to the new house, but last night was the first time I've seen anything in it. One lonely bat was nestled up in there. I'm hoping that he will bring some friends. he looked a little different from the usual lot, so I looked him up and there is a chance he could be a Hoary Bat instead of a little brown bat or a large Brown bat ( the usual residence) It's just a hunch and it is rather difficult to tell them apart. But at least we still have a bug eater in the area!

I've never heard of someone having a bat house before. Interesting!
