Daily Bat Fact

New to the Blog:  on the right, below the Phases of the Moon, you will find the Daily Bat Fact.  This is a new widget from the USFWS.  Now all you bat aficionados can join me in learning more about bats on a daily basis!


  1. Hi Ellen- New to your blog, and really excited to find it! I'm from Western NY, but live in the Northern Catskills now. Have spent many summer in the ADKS ~Raquette Lake area. Cool bat widget, they are interesting critters!

  2. What a fun widget. I may need it for my blog as I love bats - thanks for pointing it out.

  3. Hi Ellen, The firefly larvae you described below in your 2010 blog is a Pyractomena borealis larvae. They climb trees and vegetation in early spring looking for an aerial pupation site. Keep up your great observations! Lynn
