These rather large bats have been residing in the trees around the 37 intersection for a few months. They fly around in the early morning and the again just before sunset. The swarm is very noticeable in the sky from our house about a 1/2 mile away. The rest of the day they kinda hang around.
37 intersection is busy pedestrian hub as well. Nobody seems to mind or even notice the bats, although the smell of guano is pretty strong. Perhaps it is not at bad as the diesel fumes of idling traffic.
Notice that the tops of the trees lack greenery. SJD suspects they've been gnawing away at the papaya in the backyard trees.
I bet the surveillance camera keeps tabs on the population.
