Indiana Bat Autumn Migration – Ft. Knox, KY

In 2011, Copperhead Consulting radio-tagged and tracked female Indiana bats as they migrated to their hibernacula. Monitoring of the colony for the dispersal was a long drawn out and arduous process which required frequent aerial tracking. Final migration was documented via aircraft with a ground crew confirming the final destination of overwintering bats. Because the migration occurred very quickly and bats did not migrate very far (i.e., <50 km), behavioral data were not collected during the migration process. However, connections from the summer colony to multiple hibernacula were made.
