My good friend, Dave Rintoul, is on a much-deserved vacation camping in the
Chiricahuas and Gila Wilderness area at the moment, but he took a little time out from the fun and games to send me a couple images to share with you.
Been on several field trips to the Chirichahua Mountains and all you need to do is hang the feeder and the bats come in in droves. You can stand right next to the feeder and they do not mind at all. They will miss your head by inches when they fly in, great fun.
OK, those guys are pretty silly looking!
That is fascinating! I keep hummingbird feeders up but would have never have guessed they would attract bats under the right conditions. Great shot.
And is a good idea for help for bat(at least nectarivorous)conservation...
its a bat ooooo! scary j.k.
