Woodworking for Wildlife - Bat Box

Although many bats are remarkable for their habit of retreating deep into the depths of cool, moist caves during winter to hibernate, their behavior outside the hibernating period couldn’t be more different. During spring, summer, and fall bats prefer to spend their days in tight, warm spaces among trees and streams where they feed at night. Many bats are highly social during the summer, preferring to spend their days in the company of others like the large groups of mothers that raise young in maternity colonies
