Oregon Field Guide


The bat is one of the most common creatures on earth and yet we still don’t know much about it. An Oregon scientist wants to change that. Join us underground and learn a lot more about the Townsend’s Big Eared Bat. These bats emerge late in the evening to forage and are swift, highly maneuverable fliers. Prey items include small moths, flies, lacewings, dung beetles, and sawflies.

First Broadcast: 1991
