A wide variety of vertebrates likely opportunistically prey on Little Brown Bats, but no species are known to specialize on them, and surprisingly few have been confirmed as predators, including owls. Evidence of predation by owls on Little Brown Bats is limited to incidental records of predation by Eastern Screech Owls in the Great Lakes region and a Northern Saw-whet Owl in southeastern Alaska. Here, Jung et al document an observation of a Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) preying on a Little Brown Bat in a mist net. They use mist nets to capture bats on the Lubbock River in southcentral Yukon Canada.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
