Bats, bats & more bats….

Dottie & crew successfully captured target species, a federally listed northern long-eared bat and a bat common here but rarely captured in nets, a Brazilian free- tailed bat. They fitted both of them with transmitters and tracked them to tree roosts for several days.  “Other than the heat & humidity the hordes of mosquitoes, horse flies, and chiggers are our biggest challenges!”
