The field is "bat country" we camped very close to the bat house last year.
THE BAT HOUSE The Park’s new Bat House is located in the Farm Field, and is the largest known bat house in the United States. Bats enter the house from underneath through three-quarter inch openings. The Bat House is able to hold half a million bats since bats only use one-fourth of an inch of space. Bats are nature’s insect controller.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdl5_RiETQM
The largest bat house in the US? That is cool, I'll have to get a picture while there. I'll certainly be dropping that little nugget of info on some friends.
At my old place, we had some wood duck boxes up in the trees, but a few of them were taken over by bats and one by a hive of bees.
