So this lovely young woman came today to put up this interesting sound recorder to detect bats. I know we have them because I’ve seen two in the barn sleeping during the day. Apparently we have hundreds and a variety of kinds according to the info this same apparatus detected last year.
It has a gps so that it knows the time of sunset and sunrise so it can turn itself off and on each day. No sense recording birds in the day when you want bats at night.
I’m not real fond of bat’s little faces with their teeth and hissing but I’m all in favor of anything that eats bugs especially Mosquitos so I helped put up the pole with the recorder in cow camp.
