In the last week has anyone asked you what time is bat flight? Or what about: How long will bat flight last?
On the laptop and iPads in the Keynote template from June, there are a couple line graphs that show the emergence on particular nights. I think we have it for Sept. 14. So if someone asks you what time will the bats fly or how long with the flight last, you can show them that line graph and they can see what happened on a Sept. evening in the past. Based on the line, they might anticipate a slow start and then a peak and then decide to stay until 10 p.m. because I think there was a dip in the numbers of bats emerging and then a lot of action around 9:30.
I think you could even have this (or a print out of it) at the front desk for the rest of the month. I’ll be curious to hear what you get as reactions. Do people ignore the graph and look to you for further explanation, or do they talk it out, testing out their ideas of the high and low points? Does the graph mirror what you have seen in the past week or so?
Thinking of you from my desk in New England.
