In Search of Bats


Not all bats want to live in our attics... the red, the silver-haired and the hoary bat are strictly forest-dwellers, often using the cavities of dead trees to roost or raise young. But for the types of bats that like attics -- and caves and other "hibernacula" -- the loss of historical structures and improved batproofing in buildings may be causing a decline in populations.
