Hi Crystal,
Last week my daughter took me to a place just off of I-80 East of Davis to watch the bats stream out en massefor their sunset meal. Apparently some 250,000 have made their home underneath the Yolo Causeway. The link is to some Sac Bee video and commentary on the event http://videos.sacbee.com/vmix_hosted_apps/p/media?id=17025578

I heart bats.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the link - I sent it to my sister :) The only place I've actually seen bats was in Sorrento on my one trip to Europe. They came out at dusk in the garden of our hotel to eat insects. I keep thinking I should get a bat house ... http://batcon.org/index.php/get-involved/install-a-bat-house.html

Funny, my daughter was telling about those last night. We have bats at our house, they come out at dawn and dusk. I used to toss little pebbles in the air just to watch them react; however,my daughter suggested that the bats might find the practice more annoying than fun. Probably right, they do a great job controlling the local insects.
