Brown bat hybernating in the Dixie Caverns, Virginia



I took this shot in 2001, while travelling with a friend in Virginia near Blacksburgh-Roanoke area. This was in mid october with summer-like temperatures.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

White Nose Syndrome Threatens Bats in the Northeast

During the winter of 2007, at least 8,000 bats died in four caves within a 12 km circle about 20 km west of Albany, N.Y.  In 2008, the problem exploded, with white nose syndrome found in Vermont and everywhere in New York that has been thoroughly checked.  It is apparently killing every bat in the cave.  Based on what the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has found, it appears the problem is spread in part by humans.  If so, it is extremely easy to transfer from site to site.  The syndrome is a threat to all bats including the endangered Indiana bat.  Forest Service Eastern Region Endangered Species Program Manager Steve Mighton is looking into a closure order for all caves and mines on National Forest System land that are used by bats as hibernating sites until the situation is understood.  Eastern Region forests are encouraging the public not to visit the caves in the meantime.

I hope I get bats to the house I put up for them last year. A dang bear thought the post tasted good last fall and left his teeth marks in the post.  Found a tuft of hair on a  supporting brace. ::)
