Thanks, Ellen.

I'm really excited to have them.

Now, if only they'll nest here next year.

If you zoom in, you can see it's now awake and watching me with its tiny little eyes....You can even see its beautiful eyelashes!

Is this your first attempt at attracting them? Did you create or purchase a bat house?

I've yet to read through the link, but it looks promising.
Dap, have you taken any recent pictures of that snag? I remember when you first created it...

I just saw this question, Ellen, from a while ago. Yes, I regularly see barn swallows as well as chimney swifts. The barn swallows are no where as numerous, however, as the tree swallows are.

Bat house placement question: Should I place the house I have acquired on the southeast or the south side of the house? The southeast side gets somewhat blocked from trees, so it doesn't get full sun.
