There is something about darkness that remains frightening to us, even in our modern 24-hour society. We aren't meant for the dark. Because of this, creatures that do dwell in the shadows of dusk 'til dawn are naturally otherworldly; in many respects, the night is a different world, with different predators and different rules. Most birds of prey share our innate aversion to being alone in the dark. Diurnal birds have terrible eyesight in low light conditions, to the point of helplessness.

We're kicking off this month's KidsStuff with a poem about amazing bats!


Amazing Bats
Author Unknown


Amazing bats like to eat ---
Thousands of bugs for a tasty treat.
Flying through the moonlit air ---
Traveling here and traveling there.
Hibernating when the weather's cold,
Gathered with hundfriends, I'm told.
Many bats are endangered, I'm sad to say ---
There are fewer and fewer bats every day.
Be kind to bats, that's the thing to do ---
Tell your friends and your family too!
