Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.
Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great one. It might have been hard for you all to stay awake that late, but the bats were just getting started when the ball dropped. Little Freda was very excited because it was her first New Year celebration. She tried to wear a festive hat and 2015 glasses, but they kept falling off. She has a tiny head, you know. The other bats all thought she was a little silly.
2014 was a very busy year here at Save Lucy. We said “hello” to a lot of new friends. We met “Paint Can”. We also got to meet a few new bat species…Freda is one of them, but we also got a couple of Seminole bats. We also said “good bye” to a dear little bat friend, Tinybat. Let’s hope that 2015 is just as exciting as 2014, but without the sad good byes.
Happy New Year Everyone!
