Abstract:
Herein we present the first published records (N = 5) of silver-haired bats (Lasionycteris noctivagans) roosting in abandoned mines in Colorado during winter. The records are based on internal surveys of abandoned mines during the winter period from 2004 to 2008. These noteworthy records provide insights into the winter roosting ecology and habitat use of this species in southwestern Colorado.
