Yolo Basin Bats

I filmed the 250,000 bats who live under the Yolo causeway last weekend. SPECTACULAR!



Many thanks to Corky Quirk and the Yolo Basin Wildlife Area for hosting such an amazing event.

Here's a great article about the excursion and the healthy colony that lives under the freeway.

Definitely worth the trip! Better than Cats! I'd see it again and again!

Stay tuned for more footage, plus an inspiring interview with bat expert, Corky Quirk.

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!
