Evening Bat (Nycticeius humeralis)

Bats have a remarkable ability to wedge themselves into very small and tight places. This evening bat is crammed into a tiny crack in a bit of decaying tree. The bat was not visible at all unless a flashlight was used to peer in.

This particular bat was going through wildlife rehab after being injured, and was most at home when day roosting in tiny little spaces. Like most bats, it became most active after nightfall.
