WE HAVE BATS!!!

For real...we have bats!! I was sitting on the couch and I noticed something flying really, really fast by our backyard window. So, we shut-off all of the lights and all piled on the couch to see what was flying around in the backyard and it's BATS!!!

We noticed a while back that the 'birds' were having a party in our backyard at night...I'm talking like 2, 3, 4am and the 'birds' were super loud. Well, I decided to find out what bats sound like and guess what...our 'birds' are really bats and it sounds like a LOT of bats. EEEEWWWWW!!!

Here's what they sound like (cut and paste entire link in your browser):

They do this ALL night long!! We are going to set-up our camera tomorrow night on the tri-pod and try to get some pictures...we'll see :) Never thought I'd see bats in my backyard...big time city in Southern California...too funny!
