Have you looked into the twilight sky and seen the quick, agile silhouettes of bats in flight? For some it can be frightening to see bats nearby, but take heart that these amazing little hunters use their keen eyesight and powerful echolocation to find prey and stay away from humans! While there are 1,400 species of bats in the world, only 9 call New York home. Do you know your bat neighbors?
