bats in the ggp!


Holy cow it was nice outside today.

Walking home from work today, not far out of the building, between the tennis courts and the AIDS memorial grove about a dozen bats zoomed around my head. So rad.

What kind of bats were they?

Turns out there are 23 bat species native to California, 14 in the Bay Area. It was dark, they were fast and I don't know a thing about bats, so I won't even attempt to ID them.

In doing some google sleuthing I found out that the USGS has been doing bat surveys in the Bay Area, and has a great website that has all kinds of bat vocalizations. Check it out.
