Tricolored Bat (Eastern Pipistrelle)
Tricolored bats, formerly called eastern pipistrelles, are relatively small and overall look pale yellowish or pale reddish brown. The main hairs, when separated by blowing into the fur, are seen to be dark gray at the base, then broadly banded with yellowish brown and tipped with dark brown; the three-colored hairs explain the name "tricolored bat." In caves, they are often covered with dew drops. This species is usually found roosting singly, sometimes in pairs and rarely in clusters of up to a few to a dozen bats. The forearms are distinctly pink and contrast strongly with the black wing membranes. Ears are small, and the tip of the tragus is rounded. They posture typically appears hunched or rounded. They are common in winter.
