Another reason to look up. A Red Bat was seen flying over the Wetlands during the 4th of July weekend. It seemed to have a direction and purpose to its flight as if hurrying off to a daytime roost. In other words, it wasn’t flying around in circles hawking insects, it looked to be going directly to a known destination. I’ve seen Red Bats flying about in the middle of the day scooping up insects, but this one seemed to be going somewhere in a hurry.
