Myotis lucifugus lucifugus
This bat is small to medium size, with glossy fur that is a dark yellow-brown to olive brown. The face, ears, and membranes are dark, with the membranes sparsely or not furred.
This species will roost in caves, buildings, rocks and trees, under bridges, in mines and in tunnels. They also may dwell in man-made structures. This is one of the most abundant insectivorous bats in Virginia. They are found in all forested regions.
We will keep an eye on this cute little guy as we're not sure why he chose to hang out above our garage in the middle of the day.
