9 October 2015 – no avian casualties, but bonus Red Bat

I have found Big Brown Bats on campus, but this was my first Red.  Sadly, this male Red Bat was actually a window casualty at the north entrance of the Noble Research Center.  I found it lying with a pool of blood beneath its head.

1 August 2012 – Big Brown Bat

This is actually the second time I’ve found a Big Brown Bat (Eptisicus fuscus) at the NRC, but this is the first dead one.  How a bat hits a building, I don’t know.
