We live in a area the has a lot of Doug Firs and bats love to nest in them. Our neighbors have a really high front door entry with some funky design features in the eaves that a few bats have taken up residence in. You can see a small pile of guano on the porch directly below where they always nest.

Last summer we had our deck umbrella closed due to some rainy and windy weather and when we opened it back up there was a small bat asleep in the folds. He took off after awhile and never saw him again. Other than that we typically only see them on warm summer evenings when they are out catching insects.

Since we took out a bunch of firs a few years ago I have been thinking about building and putting up some bat houses to help make up a bit for taking out the trees. Because they do feed on such large numbers of bugs, they are considered beneficial around here.
