Thanks for adding your bat!

It's a big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus). I'm certain of it based on size, coloration, facial features, and the fact it's the most common species we care for at The Save Lucy Campaign so we recognize them when we see them!

How many nights have you seen the droppings. They should be good on your plants. Lucky you!
