In the mammal category, we watched a bat, I think a Red, flying along the 5th Avenue side of Green-Wood about 31st St for several minutes just after sunset, swooping and looping over and over. One of the best views we've ever had because it was kept going back and forth in front of us. There were definitely gnats in the air, so it was getting something to eat.
