The First Bats Of 2013! And A Couple Of Links To Share:

I recorded the first bat(s) of 2013 - Starting on 4/8/13 At ~ 3:15 AM (Eastern Standard Time).
So far:
A Big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus) -And- A Hoary Bat (Lasiurus cinereus) On the new Batlogger M - Outstanding results! From over 40 Meters distant! 

Here is just a snippet, of the lovely sonogram, produced by the awesome (and free!) BatExplorer software:

 Hoary Bat (Lasiurus cinereus)

(Zoomed-in on loudest call here)

The AnaBat SD2, positioned right next to it picked up nothing (despite having it's 'Sensitivity' knob set to 7)
The BatBox Griffin was also out, in a similar position. It didn't pick up anything either, But - It may be just a matter of adjusting the Trigger threshold level.

Per NOAA: Mostly Cloudy 49°F 9°C (Batlogger reported 8 C)
    Humidity 77%
    Wind Speed S 3 mph
    Barometer 29.98 in (1015.0 mb)
    Dewpoint 42°F (6°C)
    Visibility 10.00 mi

And, before I forget, I'd like to share some interesting Links -
Links from my Friend Frank, in Kiel - Main Page (in English & German)

Another one of Frank's Pages (this one explains the ardubat batlogger)

Happy bat detecting!
