: well, I would say, not too weird, we used to have bats get into our

: of woods can actually get those bat house things to
: put on the side of your real house to encourage them to live out
: there and eat your mosquitos...

I'm sure this creature came in through any one of several wide open
windows (hot summer night). It was such a pretty bat! Wingspan about
12", brown fur on the body and black wings. It got back out OK after
I secured all the domestic predators. There are bat boxes 2 blocks
away at the elementry school! I'd put bat boxes up here but I'm
afraid the housecats would consider them a fast food franchise. I've
been promising myself I'd put up some nice bat patterns in the free
section down the rabbit hole, or take the opportunity to start
