Description

Large urban bat population. Many are roosting in city trees and palms, and sometimes take flight after a disturbance or perhaps an internal bat squabble. In late afternoon, thousands of these bats can be seen in the Bata sky. Some of them are headed out to sea--why? No fruit out there...

Not 100% confident of ID, and I would welcome comments & corrections.
