>> Hi Carolyn,
>> I recently saw a brown bat in Glastonbury during the day - no rufous, just brown. I believe your sighting is an eastern red bat.  I have been informed by a bat expert that there have been many recent daytime sightings. This is due to a shortage of bugs in the evening (cooler weather?)

>> Forgot to mention in my previous post re: Rocky Neck that I saw two or perhaps three bats hawking insects over the little river that borders Rocky Neck on the west.  I saw them at 11 AM.  I was surprised to see bats during the day.  They were kind of the rufous red coloration of a female Cardinal with darkish wings.  Appeared tailless.
