    Well that’s creepy

    Off and on for the last ten days or so a random bat just shows up on the umbrella on the back patio. We’ve lived in this house for three years and this has never happened once. And it’s now happened three times in the last ten days. Is someone trying to tell us something???

    They've moved in somewhere close recently, somewhere they didn't live before.

    This obviously has something to do with climate change.

        Just don't let it drive you batty.

          I sorta thought he'd be happier hanging from an arm inside the umbrella.
          Someone in the area renovating, buddy probably got evicted in the commotion.

            I like bats, they are timid little critters and they do a good thing, and most if not all have zero interest in biting humans contrary to popular belief. I hope you enjoy his or her willingness to feel safe in your yard.

              They eat skeeters! And if they bite you, trust me you won't even notice until the rabies symptoms set in.

                I have great memories of youth when we would go out on hot summer nights and throw bottle caps up in the dark night sky and watch the bats catch them.

                  I’m a bad seed. 😬
                  I used to take my fishing pole and toss a hook over the power lines and bob it up and down. It was like air fishing. 😳
                  What the heck was wrong with me. 🤦🏼

                They do like to snuggle into the folds of closed outdoor umbrellas, I've been surprised by them a couple of times opening one up. Probably not as surprised as the bats, though.

                  Bats are bats. That bat had a mother who loves it & thinks it is wonderful & the rest of its friends might think he is alright, even though he is a little weird, wanting to land on top of a white umbrella and all. Creepy, nah, batty, oh yeah.

                    Be very careful, a bat that shows up or is out during the day most likely has rabies. Don't go near it, you might want to call animal control or the health department if another shows up.

                    It's probably just because of that family of vampires that moved in down the road...

                        if following the adage of you are what you eat, then Calvin would be correct?

                      Google how to make a bat house, an attach it to yer outdoor structure; they eat lotsa skeeters, an are no threat, unless they're sick, same as any other critter, includin humons...

                        I think it just wanted to see whether you'd make some smoked skeeters...
