Corky Quirk of NorCal Bats gave a presentation about her rescued bats. This definitely was the cutest part.

Fly like a Bat [through Bracken Cave]



There needs to be a high resolution version of this fly through. Very cool.

And in other news... a key to WNS is discovered...

One bat in Ouro Preto Cave in PETAR, Brazil



Just got back from two weeks of vacation in Brazil, where I visited, PETAR - Parque Estadual TurĂ­stico do Alto Ribeira, home to over 300 caves. I got to see a few bats there. Most of the bats don't live in the caves where people are allowed to visit, for obvious reasons. Here is one solitary bat telling me to get lost while he's trying to take a nap!

a glimpse of magic

It was a magical zen-like experience waiting for the bats to emerge at twilight at Russian River Vineyards. Here is a small glimpse of what we saw.



We didn't see very many bats, but the setting was very picturesque and even felt haunted. Very fitting for bat viewing!
