Palisades Bat Cam: Active Seasonally (May-September)

This roost can get really busy from mid May through June. Near the end of June, watch for the bat pups. They are quite a bit smaller that their mother and are often hid under her belly. Watch for tiny feet sticking out nears the Mom's legs. The pups also hang by themselves.

For scale, there is a loonie glued to the wood down on the left hand side of the screen.

The roost is in a building not used by the general public. The bats are not disturbed by the camera, which uses infrared LEDs for light. The attic is dark to you and me, and the bats.

"Parks Canada staff members, or batmen and batwomen, are super heroes in the fight to save bats! Across North America, bat populations are declining because of threats like White Nose Syndrome. This fungus can quickly spread through an entire colony of hibernating bats. Get inspired to save bats with these tales from Parks Canada’s bat savers, then start your own Bring Back the Wild campaign and become a bat saver too."
