Bat house


I have posted pictures of this bat house before. I'm not sure the bats use it, because in all of the years it has been there, I have never seen any bats going in or out of it. Maybe I just haven't been there at the right time! It is located near a retention pond behind a local mall.

Update on me: The cat scan I had last week on my fractured leg came back good, so now I'm just taking it easy and trying to heal. I go back to my doctor next week for more X-rays. My almost 10 year old granddaughter is staying with me this week and she has been such a big help. I will hate to see her go back home next week!

...bats get bum rap!

I've seen them in summer time, generally after the sun has gone down but when there's still just enough light to see movement in the sky. Odds are if they make use of it, that's when they'd be visible.

I was going to make some snarky comment about this being the house where my elementary school teachers lived, but decided against it. :) So glad that you're moving right along the road to recovery. And bless your almost 10 year old granddaughter. I'd guess she thinks quite highly of her grandmother! Take good care of yourself!

I'm so glad you got a good report!! I have not seen any bat houses in real life. This is really a cool one! I bet there are bats in it, but only coming and going at night. I think bats usually come out at dusk.

That's a first for me as I haven't seen one of these for bats!
So glad your scan was good!

Maybe you need to be there at dusk! The bats sure need some help so it is good to see such a house for them.
Good news about the leg!

I'm glad you're feeling better. It's so sweet your little helper was there.

They probably fly in the night when nobody is there. Good the hear you are going better with the leg.

Hello, maybe the bats use the house more at night. I am happy to hear your good news, it is nice your granddaughter is there to help you out. Take care. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

I'd not heard or seen a bat house before!
Good news on your leg, continued good wishes for a speedy recovery.

Grandchildren are so special, I spent time with mine earlier today when they came home from school ... I cherish the moments.

Take care and heal well.

All the best Jan

So glad the healing is going well! Keep it up!

BeachGypsy said...

Stopped in to see how your leg is doing and how you're feeling! Hope all is going well and I'm so glad your granddaughter was able to stay and be there to help you out! Does your doctor have any idea of a time frame for a break there, how long to heal? Hopefully you'll be up and around again real real soon!

Glad to hear you've gotten some good news! It's always good if you can avoid surgery. And how nice that you have a little helper, too.
Bats come and go typically in the early evening, dusk hours. They're great eaters of insects and are very beneficial to humans (they may help keep mosquitoes down at the retention pond) and are valuable in agricultural areas.

Nice shot. I wouldn't like to see a bat come out. Before I retired, I worked in a courthouse with bats in the clock tower. Occasionally one would get inside the building. I once saw the courtroom clear when one swooped in. Enjoyed seeing attorneys cowering under the tables though. :)
