RE: [puma-news] Sleeping Bat

Several years ago, I was replacing a screen in a SW facing window on the
third floor. I happened to stick my head out a bit, and noticed a bat
between the copper rain gutter and the house (about a foot from me). He gave
me a "don't bother me" look, so I didn't, but it great to see the face up
close. They are busy little beavers from twilight until sunrise. I cheer
them on.
