Big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus at Mission San Fernando
Found in the warm basement of one of the buildings in the HQ area. Following advice from Dr D.F. McAlpine (Curator of Zoology at the NB Museum and bat researcher) and folks at the Atlantic Wildlife Institute, this bat was moved outdoors so that it could find a better spot to potentially hibernate. It is believed the bat was disturbed by ongoing construction and relocated from its potential hibernation locale.
The big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is native to North America, Central America, the Caribbean, and extreme northern South America.
