Bat update -
When I ordered some bee supplies from Amazon I also picked up a small bat house.
It arrived. I was underwhelmed.
But it got mounted in the front yard.
So, rather than mull over how I failed on my rocket style bat house (stupid warped wood) I went ahead and ordered a new bat house. I underestimated how big it was – even though I kind of roughed out how big it was from the dimensions they listed.
Wow. Big bat can.
Hope it works! (Shoes for scale)
