Abstract

Activity of bats was monitored in five habitats in the Daniel Boone National Forest, Lee County, Kentucky, during June, July and August 1992 using narrow-band ultrasonic bat detectors. The detectors were tuned to 32 kHz, the frequency at which echolocation calls of Virginia big-eared bats were received best. Activity of bats varied among habitats, with activity in oil fields significantly higher than the other habitats surveyed. Activity of bats was also high above cliffs. These data suggest old fields to be an important component for bats in the Daniel Boone National Forest and are probably used by Virginia big-eared bats as foraging sites.
