Southeastern Myotis Bat Colony

Robin Carter, 06/28/2006

Jessica Lucas, a graduate student at Clemson University, showed me a maternal roost of the Southeastern Myotis (Myotis austroriparius) in a hollow tree near the River Trail at Congaree National Park, Richland County, South Carolina. I returned a few days later and got some recordings of the sounds of the colony. This recording has not been filtered, nor has any adjustment been made to the frequencies. This is what you hear while squatting close to the base of the roost tree.
