Hi Grace,

It’s possible that might be an indication of a problem. One of the signs of white nose fungus in bat colonies is that they wake from hibernation too early because they’re starving. Unfortunately waking up to feed doesn’t do them any good when the insects aren’t out yet.

Seemed way too early to be seeing bats.

It was flying just above the treeline of a small mostly cedar tree park, Olympic View Park, which is just South of Bangor.

Don't we only have bats in the summer in West WA?
