Really? It does look like the google pics of the pallid bat, but the local FS biologists identified it (from these photos) as Townsend's Big Eared. I can't really see much difference except maybe the ears being lighter but the sun was shining through them so they look really light. I'll see if I can load a few more pics... Mar 15, 2018
Bummer. Looks like a fairly recent death. Did the biologist determine the cause of death? Was it white nose syndrome? Mar 16, 2018

No death. The bat was fine and eventually flew away after a few minutes of shock (after I pulled the huge flake off that it was sleeping behind). Mar 16, 2018
