Thought this was cool and why not share it with you all?

So over night lately, my husband and i have noticed that our hummingbird feeder has been being drained in one night. This is very unusual, but one night we saw a bat on it. So we borrowed a trail cam from a friend, and we saw just how many bats we've been getting!

Turns out it's an endangered species too, the Lesser Long Nosed bat, one of only three nectar feeding bats in the US

 

figured i'd share the video compilation i took . sadly it's not super detailed, but it's still pretty cool, and i'm happy to be helping an endangered species

Cool!

 

I got a trail cam for Christmas and just set it up last night for the full moon. Been hearing a lot of coyotes lately so hoped we catch some, but no luck. 
 

we have lots bats here too, maybe we’ll put it on the hummingbird feeder and try it out.

Whatever you do, do not invite one of these things inside!

This is good advice - not because they will suck your blood, but because they will poop - and bat poop is nasty.
