Hi--from your location and the size of this bat, I think it's a big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus). They are our local 'window bats'. Evening bats are about half that size and aren't known to hang out in windows in this area. And thanks for adding it to the North American Bat Tracker mission, along with all the other missions!
