  1. In a way, bats are flying rats and as such would be limited only by starvation. The Spike Jones ditty says it well “Fist I bought a little bunny, then I bought another bunny, Don’t one and one make two?” Wind farms can effect birds who require parental investments, but not bats that multiple like bats.

  2. Its not true that bats breed like rodents or rabbits. Many birds can lay multiple clutches per year, but most north American bats reproduce once anually and have a single offspring. A few species may have twins or triplets. I’ve read estimates that around only 50% or bat young make it to reproductive age. Bats are long lived, but naturally slow reproducers. Do your homework, don’t spread misconceptions.
