Bat Tube

This is a "Bat Tube", a device that allows bats to leave a building but does not allow them to return. This tube is installed in my new house (The Grange House)which has a bat problem. You can see here a bat that had just come through, taking flight.

Here is another bat that is crawling through.

One more bat coming through. Unfortunately, there are still cracks that the bats are escaping through. These cracks still need to be filled before the bat tube can work; currently if they can't get back into the tube, they can just go to a crack.

You can see another bat taking flight here.

New England Photo Extra - Alaska

My parents started to worry about me since they had not seen any new postings, well I had gone fishing. Here I am with a 30 pound King Salmon (Chinook).

Here are a couple of Sitka Black Tail deer.

This Stellar Jay landed close to me so I grabbed my camera and snapped a photo.

I was out fishing across from the Mendenhall Glacier.

For some reason I like McDonalds ice cream, while waiting for my plane in the Anchorage Airport I saw someone with an ice cream cone. I went over to the McDonalds and saw that they had two sizes, of course I selected the large. I took a photo of it because my wife would not believe the size. I do have to say this is the best looking cone I ever had at McDonalds. Most of them are sad looking at best.
