Parke’s Place – This week NJ Audubon Stewardship Project Director & Fight’n Femelschlager John Parke photographed a Big Brown Bat behind a window shutter at his house! According to the US National Park Service, “Big brown bats will consume prodigious quantities of a wide variety of night-flying insects. They are generalists in their foraging behavior and habitat selections, seemingly showing little preference for feeding over water vs. land, or in forests vs. clearings. Like many bat species, reproductive females often can consume their body weight in insects each night. Like all insect-eating bats, big brown bats contribute mightily to a healthy environment and are vital players in the checks and balances of insect pests.” When gardening for wildlife, consider placing a Bat Roosting box in your yard. What’s in your yard? We want to know!
