Silver-Haired Bat Finds a Home in Cedar Tree

Hi there something interesting and funny occurred yesterday. My boy Liam (10yrs) stepped outside the front door and heard a hissing sound . He came in and told me that there was a snake in the flower bed which is located beside the front door. I went and checked and also heard a hissing sound. I quickly discovered that a Silver -Haired Bat took up residence in my little Cedar. I have taken several photos and video of it hanging upside down in this little Cedar. It is still presently there. Here are some pics.

According to Wikipedia, the silver-haired bat is believed to be scarce, and generally weigh between 8-12 g. Besides making homes for themselves in Canada, the bats also frequent the United States, Mexico and Bermuda.
