I've been noticing a row of black "rice" at the barn entrance. Seemed an odd place for mice so I googled bat poop and sure enough, our bats are back :-D.
They are definitely living behind the barn quilt. I saw three leave the other night at 9:25. They whoosh, whoosh, whooshed out from the bottom at Top Speed. Just fascinating! I'd love to catch a video of that, but it's too dark. Hopefully there are more than three, but three is better than none if not.
Bullwinkle and I camped out in the barn last night. Blossom aka BaBa has pretty willingly volunteered to be the auntie again this year. We all had some vanilla wafers (probably her main motivation ;-) before bed and it all went pretty well. The end is near :'-(.
