    My brother in law works for Cascadia Research and is one of the local bat experts. He actually found the nursery colony under a pier at Woodward Bay in Olympia. He provided the bat detector. Who knows, it may even end up in the Oroville area.

    It was interesting that a pair of peregrine falcons made a nest in a tree - which is unsual - by the colony, and they would hunt them at dusk when the females headed out for the night foraging. Too bad for the pups when mom didn't come back.

    When I first moved to the Island I went to a Bat Seminar. The woman who put it on had a "bat detector" and we used it to find some in the area. I later looked into getting one but if I remember they were pretty pricey. We have a bat house I made up on the southern side of our roof. They come back every year and "hang out" until it gets cold. Most likely Small Browns as best I can tell. They migrate like some bird species. I have the the pieces for another bat house if your interested Rick.
