Eastern Red Bat (Lasiurus borealis)
…is a species of vesper bat native to the eastern United States, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda and some Bahamian islands. Like most bats the eastern red bat is nocturnal and feeds mostly on flying insects like moths, beetles and flies which are usually caught on the wing. Eastern red bats are highly migratory and will move south for the winter and north during the spring. Weirdly enough male and female populations migrate at different times and have different ranges in the summer. Thanks to its thick fur and small ears this solitary bat can survive freezing temperatures during hibernation, they will also wrap their wings around their body for extra insulation!
