Washita Bat Count - Western Central Oklahoma

 

Washita Bat Count 2011 - Feb. 20, 2011

Personnel: Jon and Kelley Woltz, Dale Amlee, Anne Ault, Steve Beleu

Count:
North Cave - 5m, 26p
Central Cave - 3,734m, 13p
South Cave - 3,094m, 8p

Total: 6,833 myotis velifer, 47 pips

Narrative: Anne was still recovering from a prior injury to her ankle, so she was only able to work in North Cave before she became too sore to continue. Dale had a minor accident in North Cave when his foot slipped on a rock that he slide down hard upon, injuring his left right back and his knee. Both impact points became too painful and inflammed for him to continue, so he was also only able to work in North Cave. Back at the cars Kelley found an aspirin for him, and once back to Weatherford he bought some anti-inflammation pills.

Also: we voted on Thursday, three days before caving, that we would collect no bats per Dr. Caire's request on ethical and legal grounds; we've never seen these bats as awake as they were on this warm day; and those stains on the pages of my notebook aren't from dirt but guano.
