This page is intended for reporting bat colonies.
Female little brown
bats typically return each spring to maternity colony sites to give birth and raise young. Colony sizes may vary from a few individuals upwards of several hundred
and are often located in attics, barns or under shingles.
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is monitoring these colonies and we are
asking for your help. We are interested in any information you can provide about
current or historic colonies. For example: note if you have always had a colony
in the past and now you have no bats, the total number of bats, any change in
colony and any mortality or sick bats seen.
