Well, as I was getting ready to come to work last night I noticed my little bat friend was still hanging in the same place and it did not look like it had moved at all. On the internet yesterday I read that bats will usually start to hunt about 2 hours or so after dusk. I left for work at 9:00 p.m., so I was concerned that maybe the little guy was just hanging there dead. My friend Charlie and I decided to gently prod it to see if it was alive. As soon as Charlie's finger touched him, he flicked his ears and squeaked at us. So, he's definately alive - I'm just totally perplexed as to why he is in that location. He's hanging in the window sill on my front porch which faces east, so he's getting quite a bit of light in the mornings. And there's nothing to protect him from the wind. I don't understand.
