I'm Batman

It is officially spring/summer! How do I know? Bruce is back! Bruce is our brown bat that lives alone in the eve of our deck covering. Every year he comes back to spend the warm months eating our bugs and looking extra cute as he relaxes during the day. As the weather starts to get warmer Kev and I start looking in his little summer home daily to await his arrival. He's so cute I have to really control myself not to try and pet him.

That is so cool. I want a bat to come and hang out at my house and eat the bugs too :(

Neat! I wonder how long they live.

Now that is just cool! Have you ever thought about making him a little house up there?

Let Bruce know that he's welcome to send several hundred of his closest friends and relatives to my house. We've got enough mosquitoes to feed them all - :(

NSNG beat me to the question. I wonder how old they get. I used to trap and release at my old office building. They are cute in their own way. :)

I'm jealous. I even put up a bat box, and all that attracted was a woodpecker using it for practice.

We don't have microbats here. I love that term. We have macrobats, for example flying foxes. They make a horrific noise, eat my lilypillies, and poop on my laundry hanging out to dry. Still, I love bats.

I hope you get more photos of Bruce. You can say "G'day, Bruce" like the Monty Python skit.
