@Region Philbis,
A bat on the ground during the day? Have you gotten checked for rabies?

@InfraBlue,

no.

it was in the kitchen, hanging from the spice rack.

it was in pretty bad shape, so i goaded it out onto the deck, then took the pic.

eventually it summoned the strength to fly away...

Within 10 minutes of arriving at the cottage yesterday, sitting alone on the deck, I watched a blue heron come in for a landing, then stroll half our lake front before walking out to the end of the dock, where it stayed for about an hour.

Then, moments ago, I watched seven swans swim by. Swans are not common on this lake. We saw a pair of them a few years ago, but seven is quite the sight.

It is so easy to decompress here. God I love it Smile

@Joeblow,
I've had a blue heron patrolling my lower field for the past week or so. Incongruous as hell to watch him stalking prey (crickets or possible voles) in the tall grass!

Going for my morning trail walk (it is good for my physical and mental health I was told) around a pond, there is lots of woodland creatures - chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels, birds, turkeys, deer - that I come across frequently. Well the fall tends to bring out even more scurrying around looking for food storage.

I happen upon one squirrel and he sees me and runs up a tree that is overhanging the trail. Just as I walk under it - there is some noises like branches following or other debris from the tree and I think damn squirrel is he throwing things at me and just as I am under it - wham! At my feet the dumb thing had fallen out of the tree and he hit hard.

Fortunately he must not have been hurt too badly as he quickly got to his feet and ran back up the tree. Never seen that before.
