Bats

Bats are mammals with webbed wings, typically nocturnal.

Bats

Recent studies have shown that some species of bats will annually migrate great distances offshore. Behavior while at sea varies greatly from that of bats on land. While bats use echolocation for guidance and hunting, little is known about their ability to avoid artificial structures such as energy devices, causing collision to be a significant concern. Lights may cause insects to be attracted to the turbines, which may encourage bats to remain in the vicinity of the devices.
