Nature – Local Bats
The Yuma Bat, Big Brown Bat and Little Brown Bat share the Puget Sound region with us during the summer months. In late summer/early fall, the bats migrate to Central Washington to hibernate. Find out how these small mammals fly, catch their food and take shelter in this special bat series, as Seward Park Audubon Center, Lead Naturalist, Ed Dominguez and KBCS’s Yuko Kodama watch for them on the banks of Andrew’s Bay in Seattle’s Seward Park.
