Orient Land Trust in Moffat, CO leads tours to the bat cave to watch a spectacular outflight of approximately a quarter million bats every summer evening.
Couldn't get any detailed images of individual bats, but the cloud was beautiful.
This was a special occurrence: We had recently completed the construction of the new photo blind at the Refuge HQ, and formed it to look like a "pseudo-cave" type structure. Here two *real* Mexican Free-tailed Bats found it to their liking for a roosting site. Notice the "free tail" on one of the bats.
Dead bat found in the parking area. Bats roost in the crevices of the parking structure.
Many thousand flew from under the McNeil overpass starting about 8:15pm
Mexican Free Tail Bats
Noticed this bat on the ceiling of an outdoor walkway at my work campus. Sorry for the poor photo; it was about 25 feet up and only had a cell phone camera available.
