Hi everyone! Happy 4th of July! I hope you all had a good week!
I have some exciting news! The Arizona Game and Fish Department has set up a camera inside an old barn where you can watch at least five different bat species! If you want to see the bats in their home, the best viewing time is during the day while they are sure to be sleeping and not out hunting. Arizona is home to 28 different bat species, all of which are micro-bats. Most of the species have their pups sometime between May and July. If you are lucky, you may be able to spot a pup! If you want to see the bat camera click the link here.
For those of you who enjoy watching many different types of animals, Arizona Game and Fish has other cameras too. You can see a bald eagle, sandhill crane, a great horned owl and a desert pupfish. Click here for a directory of webcams to see these animals.
