Description

Successful artificial bat box that is home to a nursery colony of Eptesicus fuscus which were positively identified using an Echo Meter Touch bat detector. An early summer exit count in 2014 revealed a population of 45+ individuals, and a late summer exit count numbered 75+. Unfortunately, an exit count from early summer 2015 indicated the population has decreased to less than 30 for unknown reasons. If a late summer exit count is performed, we will update accordingly.
