Lasiurus borealis … Wild spirits of the woods! The best kept secret out there is that these incredible beings are living in our own back yards and hardly anyone even knows they’re there. A red bat hiding in plain sight in a green tree seems like it would be grackle bait but they are amazingly hard to find; indeed many birders spend much of their lives looking in trees and have never seen one.
This is a bat with a wild intelligence and a playful personality; they’re fun loving little trouble-makers and a joy to get to know.
