On the pale bark of a big white oak…
…a Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus).

First of these I’ve seen. Eastern Red Bats are more typical here in Brooklyn. Several other species of bat have been identified by their distinctive sounds as they fly over Green-Wood.

    So excited to see the bat! I cannot believe you spotted this in daylight.
