More Bats on Hummingbird Feeder
Around September in southeastern Arizona our hummingbird feeders are visited during the night by nectar-drinking bats that cross over into the U.S. from Mexico.
These are Lesser long-nosed bats Phyllostomidae (Leptonycteris curasoae yerbabuenae) Total head and body measurement of approximately 3 inches. The tongue measures approximately the same length as the body. They are also are tailless. Their wingspan is about 10 inches.
