"The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, the mystery of unknown waters, and the sweetness of Nature undisturbed by man."

~ Charles William Beebe (1877-1962),
Log of the Sun, 1906

Little brown bats were one of our most common species of bat until a few years ago. Because of the mysterious disease, white-nose syndrome, they have now become one of our rarest species.
