Subject: Re: bats?


I've wondered if there was such a thing as "colored" bats..., but the *I* was beginning to wonder if I'd been into the communion wine! <ha>  I've done a slight bit of looking online, and I'm not finding any good pictures that, esp. in-flight shots or just with their wings expanded.  What I'm finding looks more brown than what I saw, but if the Red Bats do have a pronounced pink appearance to them this time of year, I'd say there is a really good chance that is what I'm seeing.  (Also, late-afternoon / evening light tends to have more of the red hues to it, so it may give the body color a little more red tone than normal.)

So, for now it seems that Red Bats is the most likely answer.

Thanks for the help.

  As you have seen, Bill Eddleman suggests you could be seeing Red Bats.  Bill is professor of biology at SEMO.  Do you ever see these critters perch?
